I just thought high-end was about sound quality -and as soon as we move to the next level, we can't go back. Like standard-def TV. I know CRTs are making a (small) comeback.

Ralph thinks young-ins are buying LP. That means 40-50 year olds are streaming but kids half their age are playing vinyl. Doesn't make sense. Does he mean DJs ? They are, but this small group (always) spun records.

I understand Pro-ject sold a lot of players in recent years. But who bought them ? Could be India, China or small emerging markets. Without proof of (U.S.) player sales, we have *no way* of knowing if there was a 'vinyl comeback'. For playing discs, not collecting that is...
