    Default Is anyone buying vinyl?

    Just wondered if anyone was still buying new vinyl, nothing in the new purchase thread for several weeks.
    Is everyone streaming now or just playing their old albums.
    Regards
    Robin

    Just wondering Grant, I knew you would respond. It’s interesting that if you post about turntables or cables for instance there are lots of responses, is the music getting forgotten?

    There are a lot of vinyl enthousiasts here but we have lost a lot to streaming, no doubt. I prefer vinyl but with no stick in hand im not very stable and have dropped records before because of it so I have to think whats best for me and the records as i hate damage to my lovely vinyl.
    i really need to bite bullet tbh and do it, but its hard to see them drift away bit by bit. Also here, folk are not keen to spend serious money on music i find, yet happy to drop a fortune on gear. Most of my money is in vinyl not gear

    I’m with you Grant, my hifi exists to play my music. My hifi was all purchased to my budget and what my ears tell me. I much prefer vinyl although I didn’t buy any for about 10 years mainly due to the fact that a lot of the music I like was not being released on vinyl, however now that there is greater availability I have for the last few years been buying again. But of course cds are so much cheaper. I usually listen on Apple Music or Tidal and if I like the album will buy the vinyl release.
    Regards
    Robin

    I buy a lot of new vinyl - in fact I have to ration myself because otherwise it’s easy to spend more than I can afford!

    Two of my recent ones are ‘Yawny Yawn’ by Bill Ryder-Jones:



    And ‘Anima’ by Thom Yorke:

    I agree it’s easy to overspend, I bought The Delines latest release the other day and was best part of 25

    Cassette that’s interesting, It’s been a few years since I had a cassette player.
