did comparison cd vs lp.
LP has bigger dynamic range (more bass. drums are louder than ones on a cd recording of the same album). no difference in quiet songs, except some background noise from LP.
When listening way off axis, or in another room, I prefer LP sound.

Sharing this comparison is rather pointless if you don't detail the CD and LP players.

sorry here it is: Audio Technica ATPL120 Pro DJ Turntable and sony cd player don't remember model (not es) with monica 2 dac.
I just thought it's not important which cd player it is. I've never been able to hear difference between cd players and dac's.
don't know about turntables though.
album is "Abbey Road"

With a recent chance purchase of a working cheapo Technics TT from a yard, I managed to return to vinyl a few months back, after thirty something years of tape, cd and mp3 etc. All around agreed that it was simply stunning! Complete with all the pops and clicks and other artefacts of the medium! Sadly, shortly thereafter, along comes the in-house "Dance 360" representative, aka Junior, as inquisitive/destructive as ever, who proceeds to perform a few scratch-master moves on the record carelessly left on the TT, and... Well, I am now in the hunt for replacement TP4 stylus for the TT. All said and done, I prefer the TT sound over that from the other "sources" in the house, and due to the general scarcity of TTs, both new and otherwise, I am tooling up for the eventual construction of my own localized version of the "Teres" TT... well a man can dream... Hopefully it will sound even better than the Technics...

My point exactly.

HD camcorders are moving to flash cards.

Flash cards are cheap, versatile and now offer more storage than a DVD in something small enough for a child or, with luck, even a teenager to choke on. The card will probably survive too.

What's not to like?

Default Why not both?

Ok, so why not both?

There is a German company that makes CD on one side, Vinyl on the other

They also have DVD/Vinyl discs.

I've got a nice Technics 1200 here with a retro-fitted Rega RB300 arm, Ortofon Rondo and modified pitch and it sounds pretty good

I am having a really terrible time trying to get replacement TP4 stylus(es) for my SLQD33, should I just go ahead an buy one of the many Ortofon OMP 5E, Grado Prestige Blue or Stanton L680EL cartridges available online?...

Would it be possible to retrofit a REGA arm onto a technics SLQD33? If yes, this would allow me to say goodbye to TP4, or at least open up alternatives, but would it be worth the investment in time/cash?...
