Cheaper? Hmm, not if you count buying all the components for a decent vinyl sound system. And they degrade simply by replaying the vinyl over time. The grooves also easily attract dust, which can cause interference. Being cautious with them just prevents them from deteriorating before your eyes, and there are so many pre-cautions you have to take with them to maximize the lifespan of your vinyls. In the end, considering the availability of computers and the more obscure nature of vinyl sound systems, digital just seems like the more ideal option, considering how easy it has become to acquire music for free, despite how dodgy the copies may be.
And I will admit, having a physical copy of something opposed to having said copy within the confines of a hard drive is certainly more rewarding in the longrun.
With care how long do you think a regularly played record could last? I also don't plan on never listening to downloaded music again. If I find I listen to something quite often(Youtube) and can't find a copy online I'll buy it on CD. Wouldn't it be the same case for vinyl? There's a lot for songs I want to hear in more depth and higher quality. Tah fo yo help
