Why are people buying records again?

    Nostalgia.  Some things are only available on vinyl.  Collectors like vinyl.  

    There is a difference to the sound quality, while not objectively as crisp, there is a warmth and tone associated which is difficult to replicate.  

    Millennials will never get it (not saying you are one) and everyone in between has mixed feelings.   That said, there is a reason that the biggest collectors of music think of their vinyl as the best of their collections.

    Well, you see, there are companies that make records that have good sound quality. Records are coming back strongly as a trend and are enjoyable for people to own and use.

    Maybe to the novice.....Real audiophiles hear the higher quality sounds produced though analog reproduction vs. digital.

    The advantage to digital sound is it doesn't deteriorate over time like an analog record.

    In addition, the highest end amps and pre-amps are made with the old style vacuum tubes produce higher quality sound than the electronic circuitry of today.

    For 90% of the public digital is the preferred media because of it's convenience and lower cost.

    Part of it is trendy but vinyl records reproduce the analog sound quality better than  digital. Records are the original lossless audio. The sound quality is better!

    Vinyl records are fun to collect.  They’re **** to actually listen to.

    I know an audiophile that claims the music on vinyl sounds better than digital.  Probably that is in the ear of the beholder.  What is sure is that vinyl is not as durable as digital music.
