They're not CD's, they're a stack of Laserdiscs in the basement. Analog video on 12" optical (digital) media.

A stack of laserdiscs = doorstop.

I still have a couple of functional (at least one is for sure) laserdisc players, way better than VHS but nowhere as good as HDdvd!

Ahhh dead formats...

Dead formats? (The industry to consumers...) "You're not going to get your grubby little hands on our goose! (Masters)"

The problem is that "vinyl" is not a singular noun. Vinyl is a collection/plural, like saying "my stack of vinyl over there". Saying "my vinyls" is like saying "Look at all those peoples over there!" It just doesn't make sense. Now you can do that with CDs though, so feel free.

 

Might I ask, what is the singular for vinyl then?

post #3024 of 3420

Vinyl. Though I usually use LP for singular.

Vinyl in this case refers to the whole category of LP Playback. Vinyl isn't the correct term for a single record either, except to say "That new release is coming out on vinyl". The key there is ON vinyl. One does not say "I have a vinyl" or "I have vinyls". One might say "I have vinyl records", although that's sort of redundant.

I guess it depends quite a bit on the way it's being used. 

 

I generally use LP or LPs in conversation.

I usually say "Albums" unless its an EP or single, and then I say what it is. Anyone who knows me well enough to care about what i'm buying probably knows its vinyl unless i say CD smily_headphones1.gif

I would go with "records" or "albums"

IMO the 'confusion' is caused because "vinyl" has been adopted as slang for records, albums and LPs which are really the 'correct' words.

Now please more pics!
