Years ago, they told us vinyl was dead. The LP was a thing of the past and CDs were the only thing worth buying. Then came the SACD and the DVD-Audio. And those started to fade away as well, thanks to streaming audio services. But guess what? Vinyl ain't dead! Hard core vinylheads will tell you that with proper care and feeding a well produced and cared-for vinyl record album can sound even better than its digital counterpart. I'm one of those who share that viewpoint -- with a slight caveat. Vinyl is far more sensitive to its environment and requires a bit more care in the selection of equipment and in setting up the sound room. So dig into these pages to start your own journey into resurrecting those old vinyl records.
