That's great, transfer your natural sounding vinyl music collection via a really cheap turntable to digital so that they can be compressed and lose a massive amount of audio fidelity.

Unless someone is paying you to do that, stay clear. There's a reason why some things are $30. Keep your vinyl for as long as you can. It sounds better than CD and worlds better than anything like MP3 with lossy compression.

Yeah, but it's really hard to play vinyl in my car, or on the plane.

I thought every Volkswagen bus has a built in turntable.

You would do better just torrenting copies of the LPs. I don't see any ethical problems with just torrenting the LPs you already own and keeping a decent digital copy.

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones who can't hear any difference among the three.
