Why vinyl will remain dead...or comatose..

RE: Why vinyl will remain dead...or comatose..
Hi all . I am new to this site so please excuse me if I make the odd mistake. I have used many systems over the years and find myself stuck with the following set up:


Lp12 - ittok - dynavector dv20xl ( ittok rewired and serviced by j7 )


Both set ups are old by today's standards but I love them. I can't ever see vinyl dying, cd is already on the decline and will be gone for good I'm sure in the next five years tops. The karik rejects any cd that isn't mastered perfectly and the Lp12 seems to love original release lp's and won't suffer badly manufactured re releases.

I have never heard a system that I would rather have than my own. You can't compare cd to lp these days, it is apples and oranges. Sure vinyl takes more looking after and setting up, it's now only really taken seriously by the specialists and enthusiasts.

It make click and pop with surface noise. My lp purchases may cost many times more than a cd but there is something about the sound and the fact that the vinyl in many cases is signed by the artist, limited in production in cases to a few thousand or in cases hundreds.

If I had to go one way from scratch with a small budget and had to start again...

Vinyl for me I'm afraid...
