    So, I grew up in the age of vinyl, consequently a ton of my library is on vinyl. So, I just play my mp3 player on random all, always... CONSEQUENTLY (I'm gonna try to use that word at least once again...)... I hear all sorts of stuff, but a ton of it is from the digital age i.e. cd's (Not crossdressers, CaCash I'm looking at you)...

    Anyway, it's SO SO SO much cooler with the hiss and pop... fuck watcha herd

    well..analog captures a shit tone of sound that digital does not, digital get sound in bits by the hundres while analog is full total sound.

    But I have something better
    DSD, It records like analog...but its in digital format. All the kings of music are getting their shit remastered and recording in DSD now (my buddies dad owns a bidness that remasters in partnership with a high end studio) we have been remastering all of Phill collins shit, Rolling stones, Pink Floyd and Elton John..and I get to use his studio for free!

    only problem..it only plays best on Hi Def CDs, on a Hi Def CD player...money right there

    i know this is about analog and digital but. i have been a fan of vynil since 93. thats all i ever used to spin. recently till like anout last month ive been suing cdj's and mp3 style programs to mix with the vinyl and i must say it is a very fun and interesting otucome.
    and aside from that its so much easier to grab a mp3 of some rare shit if you know how to look. other than waiting for ever for your vinyl collectionto get huge.

    MP3 is a lossy, compression format. In order to compress the audio to such small storage space, you lose both high ends and low ends when you convert something to MP3, ie. ripping an audio CD. This is why I think all this noise about MP3 being the future of the music industry is scary.

    MP3 does kind of suck now that I think about it...but I all I listen to is rap so as long as the bass ain't all muffled it's all cool.

    I hate to sound old and anachronistic but the actual truth is that in this damn age we're living we have low quality over mobility. That was the bet and its won in one sense but jpg's and mp3's still fuckin suck if you wanna be serious.

    Indeed, there is nothing sexier than the grain of a nice picture.

    Well, I use sexy in some other way. You get it.

    Unless you have a ridiculously high quality audio setup that can actually play the frequencies cut off during mp3 compression, you really shouldn't have any problem with anything over 192-kbps.

    Smart, I'm with you. You can't beat that sound.

    I'm working on recording most of my vinyl collection onto my computer, so I can listen to it on my ipod, but still keep the analog sound.
