Self explanatory. It could be due to limited quantity, high price, rarity etc. For me I just don't wanna blow my life savings on something I can scratch in 5 seconds. Pic unrelated
Why would you post that pic, when you could used a pic of Loveless which would have been very relevant.
this. I blew so much money on vinyl when i was 16-18 and I had nothing to spend my money on.
Now I wanna go travelling and shit, and the concept of buying vinyl seems absolutely ludicrous.
I feel like mbv falls into a category of bands where they make one or two albums that reach god-like status and then disband, only to realise later of it's acclaim and milk the shit out of it; i.e Neutral Milk Hotel, My Bloddy Valentine, Wu Tang Clan.
Eh if I was in a band and did something like that, I'd do exactly the same desu
>the entire history of music
i don't give a fuck about vinyls
I once bought Enya's Watermark on vinyl at an inflated price.
Me and a friend schredded it one night during a crazy mashup session.
For some time i felt bad. It was literaly unplayable
Then i Downloaded a 24/192 from rutracker
I have never looked back....
For me record collecting is a hit or miss. I feel like it's very presonalised and greatly depends. Like records are an absolute luxury. You definitely don't need them.
There are a couple of short documentaries floating around youtube about why people decide vinyl is superior and half the time I see their point the other half I feel it's bullshit. They're explanations as to why vinyl is best all seem very generalised and they don't provide sources as to how the music got on the record. Also half the time it's sebtimental bullshit.
Most of the time the vinyl is from a better source and mastered with less dynnamic compression. Most Vinyl rips i download are 24/192 and have been beating the 201X SACD remasters in sound quality. this just happened to me recently REM's Document.
IF you want an explanation look at this link.
Dynamic range has nothing to do with sound quality but rather mastering. There are remastered albums that scale poorly in the dynamic range that sounds so much better that the original one.
Excuse me but how many SACD's and 24/194 Flacs have you downloaded lately ?
Many modern studio remastered albums have sounded totally shit compared to the originals captured on a good setup. Because of the loudness war. I gave you a link. Ill give you some more. Listen yourself you fucking pleb. Compare
No i don't believe in anything. I have been building and designing hardware for 10 years and i am talking from personal experience.
Hi-Res Audio is not about ultrasonics but bit depth and impulse response. Once you step it up a few grand there is a another dimension to be heard.
