Does anyone have a clue why? LPs are basically awful. If you have a good system and the LP is brand new, then you might believe it sounds better
than the similar CD. But if you play it five times, it'll start sound a
lot less bad: the stylus slightly deforms the grooves every time you play
it. The stylus also pushes random airborne schmutz along, like a snowplow.
In playback, there's crosstalk/mixing between the channels because of the L
and R signals at the stylus affecting one another. And always, scratches
and pops and such to further degrade the reproduction. So: if you like
vinyl because you think the "sound" is better, then your only recourse[*]
is never to play it. Why *do* people want LPs?
[*] not quite true. There is a laser-scan turntable in which nothing
actually touches the surface of the LP. It is very cool. It costs
