Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD’s are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP’s are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP’s are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price. VINYL REISSUES Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording’s master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.

Who could dream a few years ago that vinyl records are beloved again, over the last years many record-stores went broke, but, also thanks to the DJ s around the world, vinyl records are still alive and kicking, the sales in the US doubled last year and sales still are going up.
What makes the vinyl record so desirable?
First of all, the artwork of the covers, take an album in your hands and you will notice, you have something there.
The age of MP3, the socalled digital revolution, is over people can t be fooled all the time, everybody knows that the sound quality of a MP3 is not good, and listen to a good vinyl record pressing, you also will hear the big big difference between a CD, MP3 and the vinyl record, first of all the warmth of it, more base and more, better sound of the vinyl record convince many people today, starting buying, collecting and playing the vinyl again.
As told before I am collecting vinyl for years now and still collecting:)
The equipment, turntables, cartridges, speakers, are much much better then 20-30 years ago, now you invest 200-300 Dollars in a good turntable, pro-ject or music hall offers them, and not to forget the vinyl pressing are better then 20-30 years ago, but even used records sounds much better on new turntables with a good cartridge, 50,- Dollars up.
like the above pro-ject debut 3 this guy you can order from me at a very moderate entry level model price.
Also the young ones, who never grew up with vinyl records are collecting them today, because used records are(still) cheap, and they noticed also that the sound of vinyl is much much better then any MP3.
Don t get me wrong here, I ve nothing against portable, downloadable music, it s convenient but for us, the real music lovers, there is nothing better then playing vinyl.
