    Then I get to thinking. What the perfect choice for something on vinyl? Something like the soundtrack to Alien or It Follows would be almost automatic, but when am I going to play that for company? So then what do I get if I'm thinking about having something available for company? A crowd pleaser, a hidden gem? Perhaps a few of my personal favorites that aren't as well known. Maybe a few in each genre?

    I am looking forward to digging through boxes of vinyl next time my son drags me to the antique store.

    Records were the best sound quality IMO

    If you are starting with nothing, i would work your way up. Rather than going head to toe, I would suggest starting with something like this:

    I once did extensive research on why vinyl sounds better than digital music. Let me see if I can rack my brain and remember the details.....

    Oh yes, now I remember....

    You see most music is broadcast in some lossy format, where details are missed, and the overall quality is reduced. It happens because audio files get compressed to make them small enough to store thousands of them on the phone, and to stream online. Regardless whether you listen to music on a streaming service like Apple Music or prefer MP3s or even the radio, you can't get the full picture of that track. Vinyl is far more high-quality. No audio data is lost when pressing a record. It sounds just as great as the producer or band intended.

    It doesn’t sound that much better. It’s an imperfect sound. Vinyl is like seeing Cary Grant and Humphrey Bogart in old movies dressed fancy as **** and smoking cigarettes. How they look is how listening to vinyl makes people feel.

    In other words, shove it up your ass WTE!

    The big question is how are they recording new music? If it's starting life digital, then you can't "improve" it by putting it on vinyl. There are lossless digital mediums and I'm pretty sure they are going to sound more like the studio recording then a record.

    Yes. And a lot of vinyl is reissue. So it's a digital source. As is modern studio recording technique. The analog is better argument couldn't possibly hold in those cases.

    That's my thinking. Now, I think there is an argument for highly compressed MP3's, but there are many lossless or near lossless formats, including some spotify type services that focus on lossless recordings.

    I'm not a big music guy, but a buddy is, so I've picked this stuff up from conversations with him.

    I have a pretty good vinyl collection, mostly studio albums from my favorite bands like NIN, Smashing Pumpkins, and The Black Keys and some classic rock like Chicago, The Beach Boys, etc. To me its not so much that vinyls sounds better (I have some lossless digital copies that blow the doors off my vinyl), but the sound is richer and there is something very purposeful to playing a record. I have a pretty simple Audio Technica turntable connected to an old Sony CD/Cassette receiver with decent speakers and it sounds great. Depending on the setup you can produce recording studio quality playback, but I have no desire to do that.

    I have thousands of songs on my computer and phone and I can hit shuffle and just skip around to my favorites, but when I put on Siamese Dream you bet your ass I am also sitting down with some sort of alcohol or something to listen to both sides of a complete album. It's kind of ritualistic and forces you to really want to hear the music you selected instead of it just being background noise. Though I do have some records that I will throw on while I'm reading or working just for some cool ambient sound.

    The other big draw for me is that I LOVE physical media and nothing beats record art and liner notes with lyrics and such. Its also relatively easy to find vinyl reissues and most new music is on vinyl as well and it always comes with a digital download code so its the best of both worlds. I am very selective about which records I will buy though, and probably only pick up 6 or so a year.
