Do You Buy Vinyl Records?

Do You Buy Vinyl Records?

I've always had a fascination with record players. It probably started when I was a kid and used to flip through my parents' seemingly endless collection of vinyl — until one of them caught me, of course. Now, it appears vinyl record albums and turntables are making a comeback. New record players are helping to reinvigorate the demand, since many plug into computers to digitize songs and albums, and now the "iPod generation" is starting to discover the joys of vinyl.

In my opinion, there's no match for the sound produced by a vinyl record, even if it's not the sharpest and clearest way to listen to a song. And some of my favorite bands (Lady Gaga, anyone?) have released new albums on vinyl.

If you're an old school music lover, and respect where music came from, then I don't know anyone who doesn't own one. Dunno...there's a certain nostalgia around vinyl that I love, regardless of what people think or use today.

I don't but voted yes because my dining room contains a 6-foot by 6-foot Ikea Expidit shelf FULL of them!

I answered yes only because I am married to a man who tortures me with vinyls. My husband can't live more then 10 minutes without playing music for everyone in the house to hear. Its like he can't plug in the 10 different pairs of headphones we have.

Why exactly would one buy a record without having a player to play it on? I have a fairly large collection at home, because I love the crackling sound they make before they start. I always buy a lot of used records when I'm in Amsterdam, they have a ton of great stores there. I do realize that the artists make nothing off of that, but they're mostly in their 70s anyway, so they're good, I think :)

I haven't bought vinyl, but my parents have a large collection. I don't really listen to the bands that produce new vinyl records anyway.

I do, and support local stores that well them. I have never even bought off i-Tunes, vinyl all the way!
