We talk a lot about technological advancements here on Nimphelos. The world is moving at such a fast pace, but how come the music industry seems to be going backwards?
What the hell are you talking about?
Well, there has been a trend recently that has brought back record players and they are going in style again. Surprisingly enough, these pieces of “junk” are not junk after all.
Technologically speaking, the sound quality emitted out of the really good record players is far better than most modern day music players. But how is that possible?
Well, it has something to do with the fact that these record players are connected to modern day receivers and speakers and the electrical signals that are sent through are actually clearer and smoother than the mp3 ‘s you are currently listening to.
Is It Really Worth Getting One Of These?
Almost ideally, record players have advanced with the decades quite well. The fact is that sound quality is something that is pretty difficult to improve on, which is why you see some old speakers that are very valuable and sound better than products 30 years later!
See, were not crazy. A lot of people are talking about how this industry seems to be going backwards. Companies are focusing on the features more now, like bluetooth connectivity and satellite radio, and they are neglecting the most important factor of them all; the sound!
So to answer the question, it really is worth getting your hands on a piece of history.
Vinyl Records Are Also Collectible
The one thing that makes record players cool today is the vinyl records they play. They are very collectible, there is a huge market for them, and it is just cool to have an actual physical representation of the music you are playing.
Most music nowadays is digital, and you obviously never physically “feel” it. Most people choose convenience nowadays and portability, so of course this is not for everyone. However, for people who really appreciate music, how can you not own a record player? This is an interest and a hobby that requires you to own not just modern day music players, but the older ones as well.
So with that said, lets make a toast to record players! The one product that seems to be getting better with time, surprisingly enough, but that twisted logic is the truth.
