You can rip records to your iPod. Just plug your stereo into your computer's sound input and record it in real time.

True. And somehow, it still sounds better than CDs. That I am clueless to explain, but it's true. Still has more presence.

I don't know what it is, but vinyl has a certain warmth to it. So, when manufacturers advertise with 24-bit mastering, it's stupid because it's only pressed at 16-bit.

Now I know why the Beatles Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab VINYLS sell for so much. You're getting perfect sound and 100% of the music. People are paying $600+ for one LP.

I voted for vinyl, because i think you get simply more for your money, they look
incredibly cool and they sound just good.
Here in Germany vinyls cost the same like CDs, so if they have a Vinyl of the
music im searching for i take vinyl. At home I attached some wooden bars to the wall
and i put them on the bars. In order to that i dont need posters or something, real
vinyls are my posters !!! i took an image of my wall for yout:

Hey wait...you can buy Oomph! albums at regular price and you're picking up US pop? Just kidding with you. Seriously though, alot of the German stuff I listen to is sick. I always wonder what the other stuff over there is like. I mean I did hear that "Heirate mich" made a little bit of splash forcing the band to print the lyrics french on the album, but because I mainly listen to the more metal side of German music (Rammstein, Oomph!, Megahertz) I had this wierd misconception that all German music was violent and repulsive....which is hardcore.

Regaurdless, to get back on topic I still think vinyl sucks.

You're still wrong ;)
Out of curiosity, though, what is your experience with vinyl?
