Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped

I like Vinyl

I have inherited a sizable collection to go along with my own meager selection and there is just something pleasant in playing a recording that is much older than I am. I also have a large CD collection most of which is ripped to mp3 (minimum 256kbs as even my cloth ears dislike a piano at 192kbs and below) plus many purchased downloads (total is about 160 GBs) .

The convenience of mp3, the quality of CD and the nostalgic joy of vinyl are all mediums I use to appreciate music (I have a digital cassette player - also inherited - pretty good sound quality just lacks the CD track skipping convenience) and most weekends I be supping ale enjoying a live pub band (not known for the quality of sound).....

As Plato said "Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything."
