Vinyl is back … yeah baby!
Actually it never really left, opting instead to take a well-deserved respite in order to give CDs get a fighting chance. While CD sales have taken a tumble over the last few years, DJs have been busy scratching out a renaissance for the old-fashioned record.
Many audiophiles prefer the “warmth” and “sonic depth” that CDs lack, investing in audio systems costing more than a P. Diddy molar. With current technology you don’t need the financial endowment of Fiddy-Cent to enjoy vinyl. Many Gen X and Yers are regularly getting into the groove, some who smugly declare that they don’t even own a CD player.
The alchemy of record manufacturing has remained relatively unchanged since your grandparent’s danced in front of the Chesterfield to the sounds of Duke Ellington’s “It Don’t Mean a Thing” playing on their beloved Victrola. Before the Luddites get too comfortable in thinking that all is right with the world, USB turntables allow even the most fiscally challenged aficionado to enjoy the subtleties of vinyl, then transfer it to their iPods for convenience. You can even add a download card to the package for the convenience of your fans and to keep them within Twittering distance.
