CE Pro 12 Things Learned at Cedia 2010
With 453 exhibitors there was a lot to take in at the show, but of their top 12 one that stood out at them didn't surprise LiteSync at all...we have known about this for years.
The title of the article is "Vinyl is cool again". But at LiteSync its more than just "cool" for when it's play back is correctly done, it can put the best of digital to shame in sonic reproduction.
The article goes on to say...
Since the introduction of the CD more than 25 years ago, the role of the LP was slowly relegated to the niche status. Over the past two years, however, vinyl has experienced a near unprecedented revival. Music industry sales figures indicate that sales are up. Anecdotal evidence suggest that patronage at record stores is up. And equipment manufacturers are reporting sales are up.
"Over the past two years". We see this as a bit uniformed as LiteSync has been speaking and observing this resurgence for longer than this. While getting the analog sound is harder to do, once achieved, it brings one much closer to the music in a way that digital can not do.
