  1. I've been into many debates over the years about vinyl vs digital, and this short 3 minute video hits it spot on in the shortest way possible.

      About the vinyl thing, i come from a generation where the CD was the main format of gaining music. The nostalgia factor for vinyls is from my experience CD's. The smell of the fresh scent off the plastic, flipping through the lyric booklet and the artwork, putting the disc into the stereo, etc etc. I was born too late to experience the vinyl in it's prime, but I do understand where the nostalgia factor comes in and it's a big deal to older music nerds.

      The guy in the video said there is no discernible difference in the quality of the sound between digital vs vinyl like choosing which car you like better based on their spark plugs. I don't know if I agree with that listening assessment. I listened to Motley Crue's "Shout At The Devil" album on CD, vinyl, & cassette once & they all sounded completely different even though they were the same arrangements note for note. It's like claiming that a studio recording & a live recording of the same material is identical. It's not.

      He's referring to the mastering production of the album. This depends on album issues, as reissues tend to vary differently in sound quality of remasters and depending on how they were mastered in the studio. So many CD remasters in the 90's did sound different from the vinyl since the remasters had tweaks to the audio and this tends to be the main focus point of remasters.
