Ever wonder why CD players are disappearing and turntables are coming back? With high quality music at your fingertips from a smart device, the convenience of streaming has pushed CDs out of the market.
There are many options that can get you CD quality music or better. If you haven’t heard Tidal on a Roon system, come by the shop for a demo. But if you really want to hear the best detail possible, vinyl has the answer.
Vinyl records don’t have the same restrictions as digital formats. Because vinyl is an analog medium, there is no compression from the studio recording to when you play it in your audio system. This is true for older albums originally recorded on tapes and new albums recorded digitally. When a vinyl record is pressed, there is no limit to data size like on a CD. You just get the music. I was amazed the first time I heard a new artist on vinyl versus CD or streaming. There were parts of the music that I had never heard before.
Just like any other audio component you will need a turntable that is built well to perform well. We only offer turntables that will sound better than a CD player, because isn’t that the purpose? Come by the shop and meet a new friend or reacquaint yourself with an old friend.
