Are Vinyl Records Coming Back?

Are Vinyl Records Coming Back?

Are records outdated?  What's the draw to old technology? These are a few of the questions we've heard when it comes to vinyl collecting. Well we're here to set the record straight. Vinyl records aren't going anywhere any time soon and we'll give you 4 reasons why:

Sound Quality:

Many vinyl enthusiasts argue that records offer a warmer, more natural sound than digital formats. This is because the audio is physically etched into the grooves of the record, rather than being stored digitally as a series of 1’s and 0’s.  However, this all depends on your speaker set up.  Remember: cheap speakers yield cheap sound.


For some people, the physical aspect of vinyl records is part of the appeal. Holding a record in your hands, reading the album artwork, and placing the needle on the record adds a level of tangibility and ritual to the listening experience.


For collectors, vinyl records are a way to own a physical piece of music history. Record collecting can be a fun and rewarding hobby, with rare and hard-to-find records fetching high prices on the market.


Vinyl records are also a nostalgic medium. Collectors may have grown up listening to records and want to reconnect with their past.


Overall, while vinyl records may not be the most convenient or technologically advanced way to listen to music, they continue to be popular with people who value sound quality, tangibility, collectability, and nostalgia.
