Also Digital audio is lots of snapshots of the audio waveform. 16 bits is not enough to capture every nuance correctly so the missing bits cause steps in the audio.
MP3`s have up to 90% of the data stripped out of the audio - mostly this is fine detail and a lot in the middle ground.
In order of qualityWorst MP3Then CDThen VinylThen 24bit Wav Then 2" reel to reel tape at 30 inches per second. (ask your dad!)
Also, mp3`s are crappy quality and I can`t stand when someone spends a lot of money on sound equipment and then plays mp3`s on it.
Too clever for you Fancy! ;) Didn`t even need to look at the comments
This may be an extreme example, but this guy suggests *walking softly when near the playing turntable*.
CDs will always sound cleaner. The effect achieved on LPs to some degree is the equivalent to "blur" on a TV screen. Making it too sharp often makes it seem strange, even though it is the higher quality (crisper/sharper) image.
If you want to argue you like them better, good for you, but don`t go throwing around words like "definitely". It definitely isn`t that clear cut.
NO one cares where you saw it
hey fancy, i think i just won. (this is a CD pit btw.)
Depends on what you use as a needle
You`re already here. :)
Also, the Sound Quality of vinyl starts degrading as soon as you play it, both due to groove being altered by the needle, and the needle itself being blunted.
no, you`re right but vinyls have a warmer tone, they`re great for older songs (even through the 90`s) but now with lossless media and 7.1 surround, vinyl doesn`t even exist in a quality argument. though they`re great nostalgia pieces and like I said out of a 2 speaker or even a 5.1, they`re much better at setting `the mood`...
I wouldn`t call it "better quality" though lol
So I`m very glad to be told by you I`m a moron :) Thanks! It makes me feel superior, somehow.
I know, but my tables and mixer are across the country. By saying "I miss records" I mean I miss my old hobby.
If you missed them as much as you say, you would know that they still make vinyl records and that they are extremely easy to find. My roommate got 2 record players last christmas, one from his parents and another from a friend.
I still think that everyone who says vinyl has higher quality audio due to it "being directly embossed onto the surface" is a moron. Every dust particle, every fingerprint, would therefore degrade the quality. And if you give the vinyl enough time to age, without ever using the vinyl, the audio will gradually decrease, rendering it as useful as tapes.
Awesome pic btw! :D
