Been listening to my mp3 player in my vehicle for the last couple of years pretty much constantly. Decided to go onto iTunes and burn a couple of albums onto cd...WOW!

The sound quality of cd blows mp3 away!

But IMO, vinyl blows cd and mp3 out of the water...as far as depth of sound.

This is very true!

There was a German recording company that released a ton of Classical music back in the 60's & 70's (I forget the name of the company) and the sound was the crispest, clearest, cleanest I have ever heard. You just needed a very high quality needle cartridge on your turntable. Back in those days I had a Harmon Kardon, and the sound was truly amazing. Sad thing all you could get was classical, like Tchaikovsky, Beethoven and the like.

Listening to the Beatles on vinyl is a real experience! Listen to "A Day in the Life" on Sgt. Peppers, the last song on the 2nd side of the album, and don't have your turntable to set to reject the arm, the orchestration at the end of the song will go on forever...........

I went to sleep with it almost every night when I was a teenager. On the White Album, if you have a turntable that will turn counterclockwise also, put on Revolution Number Nine, playing backwards and you can here John Lennon pleadingly saying..."Turn Me on Dead Man" over and over. Of course it helps to be high when listening. This was just one of the many reasons why the rumor in the summer of 1969 that Paul McCartney was dead.

But yeah.... Vinyl is the Best!!! So were the Beatles.wink.png

One of the problems with ripping albums from mp3 sites and iTunes is continuity of songs.

Some albums have songs that connect or flow into each other...but albums downloaded from these sites disconnect these songs and ruin the flow of the albums.

I felt that way for a while about downloaded music and it irritated me until I remembered how much I paid for the albums lol. Most songs I listen to now, when I decide to listen to music don't carry over.

I like iTunes service, but if I want to buy an album that has continuity of songs...then I'll just have to order the cd online from now on.

By the time I was 14, I always listened to albums in their entirety, seeing as how many albums in the late 60's were meant to be listened to all the way through. Moody Blues, Pink Floyd come to mind, then Tull came out with Thick as a Brick and Michael Oldfield's Tubular Bells. But The Beatles Abbey Road took the cake, it had to be listened to from Come Together to Her Majesty.

That's the way I always listened to them as well.

Back then, albums evoked more imagination than a lot of today's music.

From the content on the vinyl to the album cover and sleeve on the old records.

That's what I hate about iTunes.

My kids got me the Beatles entire collection for Christmas a couple of years ago and they've got songs from Revolver on Rubber Soul, and not in the order they were originally. Drives me crazy, as that's how I listened to them since each album was released.

If you rip your own CD make sure the compression rate is high. 296 or 356 is CD sound for the most part.

Check lossless compression and it might sound better than the original CD. But it will be very hard to notice the real from the copy.

If you want tips for dl ing then pm me.

lmao you old mfers. vinyl sounds like ****.

That's simply because you were so high while listening you kept scratching the album with the needle.

No doubt vinyl doesn't hold up over time compared to CD or MP3 but a master recording on good vinyl will blow your mind.......especially after some good bud.
