The discussion of cassettes has prompted me to think seriously about vinyl. As someone who doesn't own any vinyl, I have an open mind and would like to hear from those who do.
What is it about vinyl that you like? Is it sonic quality or the fact that records make a really cool item to collect and play, or a little of both? I assume that most of you who own vinyl, in fact, own both vinyl and CDs and, if so, I'm wondering on what basis would you choose to purchase vinyl over CD, assuming that the album in question is available in both formats? Are there certain genres of music or even certain albums that just sound better on vinyl than CD to your ears?
