Vinyl records make a comeback

Although digital still rules, vinyl is making a steady comeback due to its unique audio quality and artwork.

    In an age of music-on-the go, where iPods and MP3s rule supreme, a small but devoted following of music lovers has endeavoured to save one curio from the analogue dustbin.

    Gramophone records were once the only way that music could be stored and heard, but while MP3s and CDs had all but eliminated the medium, vinyl is making a comeback among audiophiles for its unique audio quality, larger-than-life artwork, and a more intimate listening experience.
