Collecting vinyl records has multiple rewards. You not only can assemble a nice collection of some rare vinyl albums by some of your favorite bands and solo artists, but if the record is of good enough quality, listening to them is awesome. Nothing can beat the sound of a vinyl record. The plus side of the digital recordings was that you couldn’t hear any hiss, pops or crackles. But those CDs can’t beat the high treble and deep bass that a vinyl recording produces. Many people also will collect vinyl because of the rare artwork on the covers. Whatever your reason, this is a great area for collecting and is becoming extremely popular.
