30 years ago, vinyl was the only lossless source we had. The first METAL cd presses started in the late 80’s. Tape was out of my choices of purchase.
Vinyl is not about “classic”, its about the unique sound that can be reproduced at some serious audio system. The music spectrum from a vinyl record is in theory bigger. Although there’s some album productions from the last years that were record directly to digital sources, so vinyl is no gain compared to any flac file or CD audio taken from that same digital source. In theory many audiophiles say, digital is killing the real essence of the sound, the music.
So, you’re saying that if album is recorded digitally and then printed on vinyl, it has the same sound as flac or CD?
Morphy: awesome records, good choice.
I assume the Testament one is the 2 x pic-disc right ?
Since you are starting your vinyl experience, i must suggest you to prefer black vinyl over coloured or pic-disc to listen. (ofc most of the time the limited editions are not black, but something else more extreme and unique).
Testament is blue/black splatter version. :) Thanks for your advices, if you have more, cause I’m really newbie, I would be glad to listen! I have heard that black vinyl is done in better quality than colored and pictured vinyls, but I don’t know why is that. Maybe because of different materials.
