there are the audiophiles who will argue until DVD's pass by to the next wave of media, that 'vinyl'
holds a truer sound quality. I'm not necessarily one to argue the quality of them, though there is a
value to them, much like books will always have a value regardless of the technology that finally
eliminates bound paper pages. It's a sensual thing.

We have a fairly significant collection of albums from the days when this school offered a music degree;
now, they mostly sit unused and untouched (except by me ;-) in a room I just recently transformed into
the video editing room.

No. Not many people use records, especially if they can get the same piece on CD.
