Thanks very much for this link, and the valuable info that it provides. If you ever choose to pursue vinyl, I suggest that you listen to stereo, rather than mono LPs. IMO, old vinyl (often > 30 years old) is just fine, sounds great, and can cost as low as 25 cents per LP. But, before making final judgement, be sure to listed to a really fine (and IMO contemporary) player/arm/cartridge combo. Take a look at my profile for an example of such a (Pro-Ject/Suminko Blackbird) player combo. Try to listen to a source that's in the same class as mine. I find that the sound of vinyl that's provided by a high quality rig, as opposed to that produced by my AR turntable/Shure V15 cartridge combo, is much more refined, and this difference really dramatizes, for me, the benefits of most vinyl stereo LPs, versus most CDs and SACDs. But, since my listening is mostly to classical music, through active studio monitors, my opinion regarding vinyl versus digital is mostly based on this experience.

to the review. He uses the same songs on vinyl and digital to do comparisons. I myself have never heard vinyl, but would like to one day. The description of the sound as warm, smooth, lush just sounds so seductive.
