RE: what meter? What niche?

What E-Stat is indicating is despite a decade and a half-long resurgence, LP is still a tiny percent of the market. Then, surveys show only half of LP buyers are playing them. Half are collecting.

We need U.S. turntable sales over the past 10-15 years to know if there was any comeback.

It could just be a Twin Cities/Seattle phenomenon. Vinyl wasn't 'pressed' that much in the 90s or 2000s and LPs don't last forever. So there was a demand for LP in DJ/underground music circles by 2008-10. Timed just right for a retro-movement in the U.S. (like pinball machines in Chicago, old brand-names coming back, etc.)
