I enjoyed my record collection, although its now gone and my Turntable and some of my record collection is with our son, which we love.
Honestly, I know it is sacrilegious, but I don’t miss it as my digital sounds great and while I don’t look at the record information that comes with CD’s, what is available on my iPad, which is how I run my digital source, gives plenty of great information. While I don’t use it personally, Roon is supposed to be rich in artist and album information and better than the T+A MusicNavigator that I use.
And, PS Audio is having a sale on their LP’s
Ever notice that when you pick up a vinyl record, it feels like something real? I mean, as much as I am a digital audio fan, I cannot ignore the feel of vinyl. Its heft. The depth and texture of a 180-gram beauty.
And you can see the music. See the tracks and the spaces that separate them.
One of my great joys is opening for the first time a virgin vinyl release. There’s an intoxicating smell as you pull out the sleeve and release the vinyl.
I can’t help but feel a sense of awe and wonder.
And each copy seems unique: just slightly different than the others. After a few plays, it is definitely one of a kind.
And then there’s the artwork. The album cover is a canvas for some of the most iconic and beautiful artwork in the world of music, and holding a vinyl record lets you really appreciate it in a way that a tiny CD booklet can’t match.
For those of us who love music, holding a vinyl record is a powerful, emotional experience. It’s a reminder of everything great about music – the art, the passion, the soul. And it’s a reminder that sometimes, the simplest things in life can be the most meaningful.
There are only a few days left to score all the Octave vinyl you can.
Now, 1/2 off.
