I was surprised to find a Vinyl display in Walmart yesterday.

As I always say when my wife frowns at my sartorial style, wait long enough and everything comes back into fashion.....

Curiously, a lot - perhaps the majority? - of people buying vinyl are not into "hi-fi" - have cheap turntables, just like the tactile nature of it all, the whole experience of the cover, turning it over, the surface noise....

And then there is the crowd which converts vinyl into mp3.

If there is a sound difference you've got to really wonder just how rubbish CDs have become when people are buying Vinyl over CD.

My impression growing up was that the majority of record sales were always to lo-fi owners.

Somehow I doubt that the majority of new vinyl listeners are low-fi or as low-fi as you report. I can literally go to my local JB HiFi and pickup a Pioneer PLX-1000 turntable for about $1,000. But yes there are other rubbish out there like Marley and Audio Technica. That is saying something! Because in the 70s-90s we all had those horrible turntables to play on, but not anymore.

But even then the cheap and nasty ones will still make good music. nothing like the flutter generators of the past.

They sell a lot of Crosley's in these parts - the modern equivalent of the bottom of the barrel dregs portables of the past. Execrable sound is an understatement (My parents have one now that they gave up their HiFi)

I know a small number of young people who collect them and play the MP3s that come as a download code with the record instead. They don't own any HiFi gear at all.
