Analog

There is no more emotional topic with audiophiles than the sonic characteristics of vinyl. Audiophiles go to the most over-the-top extremes to get the most from their collection of vinyl records. They spend anywhere from hundreds of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars on turntables that can deliver the most magical of sound. Critics say that vinyl has a high signal to noise ratio and limited dynamics compared to Compact Discs but it’s hard to argue that the analog sound is alluring, sexy and compelling. Vinyl also is the format that, by far, the most audiophile records are released on. 180 gram and 200 gram analog records provide a fantastic musical experience.
