Just a reminder that 3 or 4 years ago, they also sold vinyl...10 years ago, they were still selling vinyl...Even 15 years ago, vinyl was beginning to get into full swing...I can find many of the releases I might have wanted from the 2000's still on vinyl...Heck, I have about 1,000-2,000 45's just from 1990-2000 alone! #-o And what are they STILL selling as of 2019??? VINYL!! Flared jeans??? Bell bottoms??? Peasant shirts??? That stuff will come and go, but I have no doubt that vinyl will continue to get bigger...
I play vinyl. CD occasionally. I prefer ripping my CDs and playing them on a network streamer. Spotify. Cassette occasionally. Reel to reel occasionally.
I like music!
It is my opinion that the current popularity of vinyl is fashion and marketing driven.
You're entitled to disagree. I'm a reasonable person. Both are only opinions. The world won't end from expressing an opinion. 😉
Appealing to a "higher authority" doesn't work to convince me of the merits of vinyl. Kelly is no more an authority than me, or you or Michael Fremer, or anyone else, with functioning senses and a technical interest in this topic. Kelly is actually not a higher authority than me. LOL 😆
I have my own ears and eyes. I know what's good and bad about all formats.
I listen to all formats.
I've read scholarly technical articles too.
I feel my knowledge is fair and balanced, and I don't think I'm too biased.
I enjoy listening to music. I don't care too much about the format so long as the music sounds good.
