One thought on “Video explainer: The truth about vinyl

  • This video was really worth a watch. Excellent explanation of the physics and overall science, though could have perhaps elaborated a bit more on why digital audio is truly damn near identical.

    And yeah, my preference is that I hate “the warmth” of vinyl. But I do like the ritual of choosing and dropping the needle … and it’s fun to DJ with records. But every time there’s a problem with skipping, incorrect speed, dust, no sound, slipping, … I’m reminded why we collectively dumped vinyl for CDs in the 80s.
