    What an absolutely pointless thread

    Quite different to each other, in what way, Shaun?

    You know I'm a vinyl nut, *but* my T/T and CD player sound very similar, in terms of their respective sonic presentations - and experience tells me that's exactly how it should be when you've optimised the playback, using good equipment, of both LPs and CDs

    I'm sorry, and whilst I know which I ultimately prefer (vinyl), I don't buy the oft mentioned notion of CD and vinyl sounding markedly different. If they do, then for me it's down to the playback equipment used not properly optimising and/or colouring their respective music formats.

    The other thing too (and I don't think this applies to you) is that if your experience of listening to vinyl has been restricted solely to the playback of less than pristine secondhand records, then quite frankly, you've yet to hear what vinyl can do on a good T/T!

    Yup!

    Very happy with my CD sound and the sound from records.

    Gear: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/one scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/two hefty Japanese DD TT's/hefty Japanese BD TT/smaller Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. One CD transport/3 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. One MD deck. One tuner. Two TVC pre-amps/two valve pre-amps/solid state pre-amp/passive pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Lol... I take it then you haven't seen not only how many turntables exist now in the modern world, but how many records are being produced and sold now in the same modern world, with LPs currently being sold in places like supermarkets, and in greater quantities than ever, to both young and old, since they did in their heyday?

    With respect, Simon, I suggest that you open your eyes and witness the reality of the modern world around you, rather than your somewhat shortsighted/prejudiced view of it. Digital is not automatically 'modern' just for the sake of it, you know!

    In what way, Clive?

    Some of the finest sounding records I own feature classical music, either original Deccas/Mercury Living Presence, etc, from the 1950s, or modern audiophile reissues of such.

    Perhaps you mean in terms of surface noise, during quiet passages? That shouldn't be an issue with clean records in good condition, together with a well-set up cartridge, arm and T/T

    .
    They've still got a lot of catching-up to do.

    Sales of LPs in the UK in 1969: 49.2 million

    Sales of LPs in the UK in 2016: 3.2 million (compared to 47.3 million CDs)

    Yes, Joe, I know. However, unless you've been living on the moon recently, you can't fail to have noticed the huge resurgence in the popularity of vinyl records and T/Ts - it's all around us these days, even on some TV adverts!

    I was at a show in Manchester last weekend that was totally devoted to vinyl replay, and indeed any hi-fi show you go to these days, turntables are better represented than ever.

    Therefore, I'm afraid the irony is that it's only the out-of-touch fuddy-duddies who consider that T/Ts and LPs aren't a part (and a continually growing one) of the modern world. The likelihood is that CDs will become defunct long before vinyl, as streaming becomes the choice for most...
