My CD transport (EMM Labs) conked out last week, and since it's gone for repairs, I've been listening exclusively to LPs. Yesterday, 16-yr old son comes over and asks me if I can show him how to use the record player! So far, his listening has been exclusively through his iPod or through his laptop (mp3), and he has never been curious about operating the CD player/DAC. Any of my CDs he liked, he ripped on his laptop and wouldn't care about the hifi.
So, amused, I relate this story to my girlfriend who is as far from being an audiophile than I am from designer handbags. I was pleasantly surprised when she replied "it's normal, records sound like real music"!
There's still hope
