Nah dhromed, I don't think it makes you irrationally biased. Sounds more like a rational preference smile.gif

@ Kraut: that is a nice looking setup you have there. Looks like you've quite a collection of LPs as well.

I love digital audio. It was a blessing to me when I got my first CD player. I hated the cassettes I grew up with and didn't buy much on vinyl. Looking back I wish I had because those tapes were a nightmare...favorite ones were always getting chewed up.

I find myself interested in vinyl for the collectible aspects. I have to agree with db1989: I too will pick up a copy of some of my favorite albums on record. Just for the hell of it. (I like to think of it as supporting the artists I really love...even though I bought the CD or iTunes version.) They don't sound "better." They just sound "different."

My belief is that it is mostly nostalgia. When certain "audiophiles" stop crying about digital and begin admitting that it's all just "tradition" then I believe many will cease in their (very successful) efforts to debunk their bullshit.
