My own return to vinyl was around 2006

I was an enthusiastic supporter of SACD simply because I had found that CD technology was just not as satisfying. I had downsized by vinyl collection substantially anyway in the 90s when I moved from SF to Miami. (I am back in the Bay Area now). Anyway, I owned a Rega P3 for the few records I had, and one day, playing something not available on SACD nor CD, heard sounds coming from that P3 that I just didn't hear from my digital system. I started to experiment, and the next thing you know, was hooked on vinyl.

Initially I worked to replace the vinyl that I had discarded, but ultimately it became much bigger than that. Today I own far more LPs than I ever did before, and I currently also own a Garrard 301.

I get into certain collecting kicks - so for example, I once wanted to acquire all of Verdi's operas on LP (and yes, I was successful). My collection is a combination of used LPs, purchased partially on eBay and partially at record stores, and new vinyl, some of which are reissues, of course, and some that are new, like the stuff that Hilary Hahn is doing for DG. I listen to quite a few genres of music, so besides classical there is also a lot of classic rock, jazz, folk, and even a few new artists that I like. When my stepkids lived here, there were requests for things like Katy Perry, Adele, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, stuff like that. It is amazing how much is now available, and by and large quality is better than it was in the 70s.
