This threads a bit over my head. What speed do these things run at? 45 or 33rpm

Well a lot of people still reckon a good vinyl setup with a GOOD unmarked record will still give you far better quality than CD....

Who reckons this !!!!!

It may well be true but only for the first couple of plays on a record that is played in a sealed dust free environment - I have a lot of vinyl and some pretty descent decks as I used to be resident DJ in a night club in Newquay.

In practical terms the act of removing a record from its sleeve the very first time creates so much static that any dust within a few feet of the record sticks to the disc.

I have yet to find a way of playing a record without there being noticeable distortion to the sound by the end of the track due to build up of residue on the stylus.

Then within the first few plays the very high frequency parts of the recording begin to fade due to simple abrasion of the discs surface by the stylus.

Either way you look at it - within a few plays a vinyl record will have dropped off to a quality far below that of a cd - and withing 10's of plays below the quality of a high bitrate mp3.

when were you born Codders?? - We have come a long way since vinyl...
I suppose you will be talking about wax cyclinders next.Come off it- the very nature of the pick up with vinyl -i,e a stylus in permament contact implies a noise. You must be one of those who still believes that a bow and arrow is better than an AK -47???.

If your decks do that, they're not so pretty decent.


Laterly, the sound from many LP's suffered because the music was a digital recording, and it showed.

You have obviously never heard a Linn Sondek in action then.

Ask the average bloke in the street about good quality audio equipment and he will harp on about Technics or Sony etc - he will never have heard of the high end stuff. A lot of it British - especially speakers with names like Mission - KEF - Tannoy - Linn etc etc.

And it isn't ALL expensive - plenty of excellent quality British stuff at the lower end as well.

Have we REALLY come a long way since vinyl? I mean a spinning disk using magnets that moves backwards and forwards on an arm - of course I am on about a hard drive - even Eddison wouldn't have found it that amazing!!!

I blame it on stereo.
