In the News: Vinyl will kill off the CD

(This is an archived post from our old blog.)

According to a recent Wired Magazine article vinyl is poised to kill off the CD.

I think this quote is funny:

Golden-eared audiophiles have long testified to vinyl's warmer, richer sound.

I don't have "golden ears" and I don't consider myself an audiophile, but I usually reserve the words "warm" and "rich" for things like Toll-House cookies.

And I vaguely remember hearing that the CD killed vinyl about twenty-five years ago.

I think it's a bit soon to call a winner in the CD/LP/MP3 game. A Spanish language CD store (of the Ritmo Latino chain) just opened a block from my house.
