This is probably going to sound stupid, but I find it umm, not really that stupid at all. I’ve had the new Crystal Stilts single as an mp3 for a couple weeks now and had been listing to it on the old i-pod and computer. This past weekend, I picked up the actual vinyl and I’m now officially blown away by this new single. There’s something about hearing it from the needle on the record that makes it sound way better than it ever sounded as an mp3. I am not by any stretch of the imagination an audiophile, I have never had a high end stereo or expensive turntable. But I will admit, one of my favorite things in the world is to hang out and just play records, to myself, to friends, or to anyone who will listen for that matter. Am I crazy? Has this happened to you where you find a song or record sounds totally different through a stereo than through a pair of lousy headphones? It’s happened to me and now I’ll be carrying my record player, receiver and speakers with me on my commute to work. Not sure why I’m posting this, come on over to my house and I’ll play it for you on my stereo.
