i stated in another forum that i wouldn't listen to digital music even if you payed me, but now i've had a change of heart. the first time i heard a cd i felt like there was something wrong with the sound. it sounded "harsh" and blah blah blah.i seem to remember records sounding like they were fundamentaly superior on some level . the sound seemingly to be more natural, dynamic, etc. growing up i collected mostly cd's though. so, then i thought a few months ago i finally decided that i'd go back to collecting vinyl cause the sound i remembered was "better". and i did. i bought 30 records and a turntable. but now that i've compared records and cd's side by side for the first time in awhile i've come to realize that the records don't sound that much better than the cd's. they sound about the same for the most part. i don't know if the records didn't sound as good as i remembered or what. but now i don't have such a negative view of digital music. nothing goes from 20 to 20 like a cd. and its easier to transport and you can play them in your car unlike a record. but my main point here is that to me, records and cd's sound about the same. any comments welcome.
