Vinyl records are bulky, obnoxiously fragile and temperature sensitive and of inferior sound quality. I hate that garbage, and I hate all the pretentious wankers who think it makes them cool to follow that pathetic nostalgia trend like the mindless little sheep they are.

True quotes:

"I love all these audiophile idiots who set up music blogs, upload shit that they say is at 320kbps, and then it turns out that they just recorded their fucking record player and it sounds all shitty with echoes and surface noise. Vinyl is for fucking idiots."
-TheTrueSeker

"So what you're saying is you're hanging onto an obsolete and technically inferior format to make yourself feel better out of silly nostalgia, and possibly and even more ridiculous self-importance from seniority and "dedication". Yeah, great work, you really told him!"

    First of all, it's "vinyl", not "vinyls". Secondly, saying that you hate people who pay for music is just so damn absurd and ridiculous. It means that you don't respect the people who write the music you listen to, in other words, this is just stealing. Moreover, it just says that you view music as a product, not art. Furthermore, some artists produce their music in order for it to be listened on a record player -> this means that it sounds better on the record player, not on your computer. Also, there are people who prefer the sound of the vinyl, THERE REALLY ARE SUCH PEOPLE. And the fact that you enjoy vintage sounding music doesn't make you a hipster. Oh, and last but not least, this group SUCKS big time. Have a nice day.

    "Obnoxiously fragile" Yeah, tell that to my CD's with scratches on them after a single play in a stereo and then are forever unplayable in my CD player (and lets factor in my previous laptops CD drive not working for a single CD or DVD either despite never using it), then tell that to the 7'' that was dropped on an wood floor and still survived intact and playable. Might as well just call this group "I Hate Hipsters".

    There is no difference today with vinyl and CD. Most albums are mastered digitally and for their CD versions, very few albums are truly analog anymore, much less mastered for the vinyl format. If we talk about records from the 60's with their stereo and mono versions then yeah there's a huge difference. And most 70's records are mastered for the vinyl format, so they definitely would sound better than the reissued versions that came on CD and were likely remastered at the time. However most albums in the past 20 years were mastered for CD's, or recorded digitally, so the audio signals would be the same. Any vinyl reissue that's come out is usually sourced from a remastered CD version, not the original master of the album itself.

    Many of the albums I have, i have on multiple formats (cd, cassette, mp3, vinyl), and I've found that vinyl was the best. I got a record player for my 15th birthday because someone gave me some Devo records, not because of any stupid trends. And I was amazed at the difference in the sound. To me, vinyl sounds the best by far. Yes, it is a pain to take care of , but IMO it is worth it. I have run out of space to store my records, and yeah this makes me very annoyed and i wonder if i should even keep this vinyl habit up anymore. but once i play a record, i remember why it was all worth it in the first place. Really I think the people that are in this group haven't even really listened to vinyl. And you only hear "hisses and pops" on dirty records. and i dont know how i could like vinyl because of nostalgia when i was never around vinyl until i was 14. if i were to be nostalgic about any format, it would be cassettes since that is what i grew up with (before cds). not vinyl.

    Vinyl it's the biggest thing I've ever seen and also it's soo fragile, much more than CD, I don't have enough space in my home for this and the worst this thing today it's so expansive! My God, in another day I saw a men buying a vinyl, only one and the price was 167,80 dollars.

    Yes, yes, thank you for that, those bastards annoy me too! Really, the only good thing you can say about vinyl is that it can't stand as much loudness abuse as CDs.

    Thanks so much for this group. I can't stand these hipster douchebags who only like vinyl for the reasons that you brilliantly and articulately bring up above in the info section. There are so many obnoxious hipsters in my field of study and they drive me nuts, especially with this vinyl snobbery crap. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels the same way.

    Hating vinyl and hating the loudness war are not mutually exclusive, you can feel perfectly free to dislike both. I certainly do.

    I'll take a little hiss and pops over disgusting digital compression and loudness war nonsense any day. Happy physical limitations on records prevent that garbage to the extent that it exists today.

    If by "technically" you mean "in hipsters' dreams", you're absolutely spot on.

    In the end, nothing can beat inviting the artist to play in your living room. Might by [i]a bit[/i] costly, particularly in the long run, but damn what a real sound!
