I will be doing a lesson vinyl tomorrow...

As a hobbies and interest lesson - I will show them my hobby which includes vinyl and music listening.

As my review of the new Audio Note TT3 turntable notes I have mostly remained somewhat on the periphery of vinyl largely due to the fact that the sorts of record players that elevated the game over digital cost too much to my ear to deal with the pain in the ass of it all. The TT3/Arm3(V2)/IQ3 changed that pretty much on day one when I brought it home May 20th. I have practically kept Elusive Disc and Music Direct in business for the last few months as half a dozen shipments have made their way to me along with the LPs sold in various stores here in Hong Kong.

New LPs come with the digital download card as well so you have the portable copy as well. One LP also provided the CD version. Hey you can have it all these days.

The Japanese market will keep the physical formats alive and the youth seem to be into it as illustrated in this short video. Virtually all the modern artists release on vinyl so if the youngsters were not buying it they would not be released - I doubt too many 50+ year olds are listening to Halsey, Billie Eilish, Lewis Capaldi. And the massive umber of jazz and classical re-releases illustrates that some old geezers are still buying it up.

I never though I would see a time when vinyl outsold CD. Even if it is more about CD dying than LP rising the point is LP is surviving and continuing to sell. I am thankful for that.
