Open Thread: You Spin Me Right Round

Okay, so we have veered into this topic a couple of times already in the comment threads here at The TR, but lets see if anyone is around enough to engage this open thread.

Is vinyl making a comeback?

Payton has more details, but I am cynical/futuristic on this topic and hope for a new medium where we get the benefits of digital music and the quality of vinyl. I also think this is more generational than anything--says the older guy with the vinyl bias.

What do you all think or hope or argue?

I loved vinyl, but really do like the digital formats for their versatility. Frankly, I just want my turntable to work as opposed to not work, which is its status at the moment. Just one more piece of machinery in this house that doesn't do what it's supposed to do. Boo.
