Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
They've gone the way of the iron horse. Now it's i-Tunes in your pocket.
You can still see it in my house. I've be collecting, more like accumulating, since I was 10 or 11 years old. Over 4000 - 45 RPM and I don't know how many hundreds of albums. Even though a lot have been replaced by cds and I've digitized a lot of the more obscure stuff, I can't seem to part with the vinyl. It's almost like a part of me.............
It is a part of you. Never part with any of it.
I still buy new/used vinyl. I have hundreds of albums that I still play on my Technics SL-1210MK5.Many bands are releasing vinyl now as well. Sounds so much better, especially the old analog stuff.
Too much frequency clipping on the digital. Loses a lot of warmth.....
BTW great turntable you have. I used to use a pair of SL-1200s.
No, never part with them. You can always rip tracks and convert them to .mp3 or .wav - but keep all of your vinyl.
I have put a lot of the stuff onto cds. I started doing that back in the mid '90s when I started dee jaying again after taking off some of the '70s and all of the '80s. Now I convert a few into mp3s once in a while. Especially the Pittsburgh oldies sound. I get a lot of requests for them and people are surprised that I have most of what they ask about. You won't hear this kind of stuff anywhere else............Two of my favorites:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJLVVGZPXM0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YlVWqFwu3U
And the entire contents can fit on a portable device you can stick in your pocket. But hey, have both. Whatever blows your skirt up, right?
