“While vinyl records were also present in the early days, the format had a huge drop-off when CD appeared. With its inherent superior durability, longer play time, smaller size, etc., there were several improvements over the vinyl format as a whole, just not where it really counted, which was specifically how it sounded to our ears.
Largely, for this reason vinyl has had resurgence in recent years, such to the point where companies like AKAI can market a turntable in today’s market with some confidence that it will sell.”

Back in the days when the mid range ruled, and digital was only for recording studios, the record was king of media. The scratch of a dull diamond coming through speakers that were birthed before Dolby made its appearance, and huge stacks of vinyl and decorated cardboard sleeves dominated the homes of every audiophile. Now those records are collecting dust, or are accumulating scratches through heavy use, but hopefully not sitting beside a furnace. If this sounds familiar, and you have a lot of old vinyl that you want to listen to, but don’t want to hurt it nor buy a CD to replace every single one, check out the AKAI ATT023U Professional USB Turntable at Tweaktown. Not only will it play your records, you can rip those same records straight to a USB drive or an SD card.
