Why Buy Vinyl Records? Top Five Reasons

Marc HenshallCulture & Industry, New to Vinyl100 Comments

In a world where we can access almost any piece of music at the click of a mouse or the tap of a screen, who would think that a physical format like vinyl would continue to endure?

Far from being a nostalgia trip, vinyl records are now enjoyed by a wide range of ages by music fans searching for something more tangible.

Below are just some of the reasons why buying vinyl still appeals in the digital age.

1: Stunning Artwork

The artwork is bigger, this much is obvious, but since many album covers are true works of art in their own right, the inherently bigger canvas certainly makes for a bold statement. Many collectors like to display their favorite albums on the wall in their home (I use the Twelve Inch adaptors for this). And it’s hard to think of any other format better suited to this kind of homage. You can frame CDs, of course, but it’s just not the same.

The larger format also makes reading the album notes easier, and more enjoyable. Many listeners enjoy reading the credits about who produced, engineered and played on the record as part of the experience.

Also worth considering is the world of picture discs. And while these releases have a reputation for poor sound quality, they are none-the-less part of the art that makes owning music on vinyl both enjoyable and highly collectible.

Increasingly, album art is more creative than ever—just take this release from Vinyl Moon (a record subscription service I had the pleasure to review). Specializing in beautiful artful vinyl releases, this compilation of up-and-coming artists features a stunning augmented reality album cover; simply download the app on a smartphone and watch the album art come to life on your screen.

2: Owning the music you love

As humans, we are far more likely to value an item when we own it. Psychologists summarise this as the “Endowment effect”, which is the belief that people ascribe more value to things as soon as they own them. We’ve gained many advantages with the introduction of streaming services, but at the same time, we’ve also lost much of the perceived value of music.

At Sound Matters, we believe strongly in the importance of music ownership. After all, nobody ever asked to see your MP3 collection.

3: Escaping the Screens

We live in a connected world with all the advantages that come with technology our ancestors could only dream of owning. But having the world at our fingertips can take its toll on our health. Studies show that too much screen time can lead to a multitude of health problems, from sleep deprivation to eye strain, bad posture, and even addiction problems.

I cannot overstate the importance of unplugging, and the vinyl format can inherently help us achieve this. Instead of browsing through Spotify or iTunes surfing from track-to-track, vinyl demands our attention in so many ways and encourages us to focus on the music with less distraction. Regular downtime with your favorite records could be good for your health!

4: Great Sound

There is no such thing a perfect format, and I’ll be the first to recognize that vinyl has its faults (end-of-side distortion, for example), but there’s no mistaking just how great vinyl sounds when it’s made right.

Vinyl is a very musical format that can sound amazing when the mixing, mastering and manufacturing all come together to make one of the most enjoyable listening experiences out there.

Ironically, despite digital formats having a greater capacity for dynamic range on paper, it’s not uncommon for a vinyl release to have better dynamics than its digital counterparts. And perhaps more surprisingly, this has little to do with the format itself and more to do with how the record is handled by a mastering engineer.

In short, a specialist mastering engineer will often handle the vinyl release differently, perhaps choosing to apply less compression than the digital release, resulting in a sound that is less “squashed”.

5: The Therapeutic Process

I think this last point is one that many vinyl enthusiasts can relate to: the process (or as my wife calls it, “the faff”).

(For the benefit of our international readers, “faff” is British slang for an overcomplicated task, especially one that takes up a lot of time).

There’s no doubt vinyl requires extra effort and attention. From the process of carefully removing the vinyl record from its sleeve, to gently cleaning it with a carbon brush, and steadily lining up the stylus ready for playback, it’s all part of the experience. Personally, I find this ritual therapeutic. I also enjoy the satisfaction of taking home a used, dirty record from the store and slowly bringing it back to life using a good record cleaner. Perhaps you need to be of a certain mental persuasion to enjoy having to work for your music, so to speak, but then again – nothing in life worth having comes easy.

Bonus: 6 – Supporting The Artist

Let’s face it, streaming doesn’t pay the artist very well. Compared with physical album sales, concert tickets, and merchandise, pay-outs from streaming companies are a regular bone of contention for those trying to make a living in the music industry.

Diminishing returns on your back catalog might not be such an issue for big-name global artists, but for up-and-coming acts, it’s a real barrier to entry.

If supporting the artists you love is important to you, buying a physical product (including vinyl records) is a great way to show extra support and put more money in the pocket of music talent.

I love the ‘Faff’ very much. I had a large vinyl collection and gave it to my son fifteen years or so ago. About three years ago he and two of my nephews got me back into it. We now have a record club where we share all of our latest activities, purchases and product news. Setting up and physically using the TT is one of my favorite parts. I love the ‘persnickety-ness’ of the whole operation. I am now building my second collection and I still love finding that hidden jewel in the bin and bringing it back to life. Note; We all have old TTs that we have cleaned up and put back into service

Barry Slim

Vinyl records are an art form and if you happen to have original 60’s/70’s pressings of LPs, say, Sgt peppers, Hendrix, Vertigo Spiral, many prog releases, then not only do you have ‘art’ but you also have value as many of these now sell for well over £100 each! Why would any one be dismissive of collecting records for any reason? If it’s worth peanuts then maybe the sound’s amazing, if the sound’s rubbish then maybe it’s a signed album or the cover is very rare! Just enjoy ’em for what they are – a collectable medium!


Just a good way to relax and unwind, an LP sleeve has a print size that can be read easily especially with age


Some of the pro vinyl comments here are so ridiculous it’s comical. Vinyl has better bass and treble extension for one….errrrm no. Vinyl does not cope with the proper reproduction of bass very well at all due to needle skip and the bass has to be reined in. Then everyone runs out and buys albums that have been recorded digitally, mastered digitally and then converted to analogue – once through an A/D converter there is no way that the vinyl can replicate what went down in the studio – it is an approximation. Then people run out and buy represses of old albums expecting the same thrill as when they were originally released and play them on teeny tiny £70 players from HMV – If they play them at all and just have them as trophies. Except these are more likely produced using digital backups not the masters. If you want to hear a vinyl album as it should be then buy an old copy not something from that suddenly sprung up out of nowhere groovy coffee shop come vinyl emporium where the guy behind the counter has a great beard. Enjoy your £40 album as the sound deteriorates that bit more every time you scratch that bit of plastic with your rock to get some noise – caveman did good.
Sure CD has suffered from idiots who insist upon loudness over everything, but there are many that haven’t and lots of earlier CDs sound better than their remasters.

I love vinyl – grew up with it – I love CD too why have a war?


Point 5 nails it for me.
I’m in that category

Why Buy Vinyl Records? Vinyl records are a multi-faceted art form like no other. They are tactile, visual, literary and audible all in one neatly prepared package.

David Turngren

Replying to my own comment because I refined it a bit. Vinyl records are a multi-faceted art form like no other. They are tactile, visual, literary, cultural and auditory all in one neatly prepared package.

Endre Trepper

Dear Marc, I posted your thouths in a Hungarian vinyl forum, and a couple of members made the comment, that they don’t like the sequence. Is it a real priorization (the sound quality of this medium is only the fourth?), or is it a random one? Personally, I’m not interested in the cover, I like it when a detailed description is included, the amount of “faff” bothers me a bit, but for me the music and the sound quality come first. Thanks for Your answer, and have a nice day! Best regards, Endre.

Paul J Cama

I started collecting records in 1976 & been collecting ever since! Even through the 1990s CD craze( I only bought cd’s when you couldn’t find it on vinyl. BTW this is my third collection!! But, after years of collecting I then weave out the ones I didn’t like to make room for the new ones I might like. Sure it’s nice to have every single Chicago album ever made but are they really all that good? well not really in my humble opinion so I just kept the first three or four up to Carnegie Hall & 1-2 from the 70’s I wanted so for me that made a lot of room. For me it’s not only the art work but, sometimes you get stuff in side (poster etc..) like Santana, Simon & Garfunkel or the John Lennon poster that came with their records. You can’t get that with a cd!!! For me cd are jut played in the car while I drive unless it’s only available on CD like the Bee Gees box set The Studio albums 1967-1968 they were so psychedelic back then & the second disc has tracks that never were available before like Mr. wallors walling wall https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TwdM3RZWWQ As for a warmer sound well I have to say cassettes , 8-tracks & real 2 real are by far a little better quality then records but I still enjoy collection records. It’s just a shame that RSD (record store day) is it’s just a novelty items for most people who are newbie collectors just because it’s a phase!! Like my friends have records I should get a TT as well. A few years ago I was standing on line up my local record store on RSD & this woman behind me said oh David Bowie just came out with a new album I have to have it! I replied that album came out in 1972 and it’s just being reissued I have 2 copies at home.

There was even a compilation album with Godzilla on the cover (I’m not sure if it was a Pebbles collection or what) but I had to prove to the kid working there that I already had this I bought it back in the ’80s by bring down my copy & showing him!!! The artwork the posters & all is worth collecting records alone. Not to mention the thrill of digging hoping you find that 1-2 gems that you’ve been looking for.


Being 80 (2 days ago) and retired, BUYING more records doesn’t happen too often. But, I do have a collection of about 6,000 albums, and a loving longtime bride who allows me to keep them here at home. To show how long I have been acquiring vinyl, the first record I can remember buying was “The Kingston Trio at The Hungry I”. I wore out #1, bought #2 and wore it out, and now have #3 in beautiful condition. Records have so much more depth and warmth beyond what other formats can produce. I think I’m hooked!


I was a DJ from 1985-1990, at Ithaca College’s radio station, and at a dance club called The Haunt. During the 90s, I boxed them up and put them away, and (gasp) gave my 12″ singles away to sell. Still regret that. In the fall of 2020, peak Covid scary, I decided to reinvest in a turntable, amp, and even a spiffy CD player, but I went back to vinyl, and am so happy I did. I’ve spent the last 3 years listening to old vinyl, and buying used and new vinyl. My partner and I constantly listen to records, and it’s gotten me through the pandemic so far. I really think that vinyl has a different sound–richer, warmer, more immersive. Crate rummaging at record stores is so much fun!! Sometimes listening to something from 40 years ago creates such an strong sense memory, I wish I would have come back to vinyl sooner 🙂

Barrett Burcham

It’s not the only reason, but I also like the idea of having a record archived so it cannot be taken away later. A song or album can disappear from streaming in a heartbeat if the artist gets “cancelled” (R Kelly on Gaga’s “Artpop”), if a lyric becomes objectionable later (Patti Smith), or even if an uncleared sample is discovered. Once it’s on my shelf, it’s there forever.

Paul Hering

My first album was “Between The Buttons” and the first 45 was “I’m a Believer” So that will date me for sure. I am retired from Consumer Electronics, so audio has always been a part of my life. I spent a few years in a Music Store in the late 70’s where I gained a appreciation for vinyl and gear. My final years in the business were spent selling very nice things, and home theatre. B&W, Martin Logan, Proceed, Krell, B Carver. (Bob was brilliant, but different). Which brings me full circle to LP’s again. The warmth and depth of analog just can’t be reproduced in the digital format, in my opinion. I feel that I came home again.

Paul Hering

And getting up every 17 minutes to change the album, is taking a little getting used to, after all these years of continuous music at the touch of a button. : )


The ritual becomes the sacredness of the act. The ritual of making tea or coffee at home as opposed to a drive through coffee shop. The coffee just isn’t the same. It just might be the difference between being inspired to listen to music through the ritual of vinly compared to just obligated to drink from any source of music.

Jason Harvey

I was introduced to a battery operated record player when I was 5 years old. That was 45 years ago now, and my love for music has grown from there as I was given 45s to play on my little record player that I would take everywhere. So yes back then my first love was the Beatles and still are.
But as the years passed my tastes in music changed as I discovered heavy metal and that builds on maybe 10% of my collection. Classic rock holds the largest chunk, then I have a bit of blues, folk and 80s in there.
But for me I love vinyl for the chase of finding the missing records to complete a bands discography. And the cleaning of the record before I play it so I don’t damage the needle on my turntable.
Also I love searching for the amazing picture discs that are available. So many amazing albums with great art work on picture disc. I still remember my first picture disc that I picked up in Our Price in the 80s. Boston Third stage. Okay, this was my first PD album as I already bought most of Iron Maiden’s PD singles at this point.
Then the CD came along and I didn’t buy another album on vinyl until last July I think it was when I signed up to a monthly subscription for Bob Dylan albums. It’s been great getting 2 of those a month plus extras and a Project turntable after the 40th and final album. On number 18 so far. And it’s been great picking up some of the HMV anniversary releases on coloured vinyl and a picture disc. The sad thing is I don’t have any record stores near me. So all my searching has to be on the internet which takes out some of the fun. But at least there’s a huge selection out there which keeps me happy and my pockets empty.

Anthony Eley

I grew up listening to Jazz Funk, Motown, Reggae & Ska music so like to collect all available vinyl’s even ones that are still sealed. It gives me great pleasure in reading the sleeves notes. Also some have interesting covers.


It “forces” you to listen differently – usually to an entire side. Digital listening involves more jumping around, and half the time, I am not even paying attention to the track that is playing because I am too busy faffing about (see what I did there?) looking for the next track. Listening to an entire side means you might actually discover how good certain less listened-to tunes are.

Phil Taylor

So I have my late Uncle to thank for getting me back into vinyl as he left me his mint Garrard 301 Turntable so out came all my old LP,s from the late 70s early mid 80,s hello again to old friends like Joy Division etc etc damn I missed you guys ????


Plain and simple for me…….MEMORIES!!!

Don Ravanelli

When I have time, I play vinyl for critical listening pleasure, any and all other formats are played when I can’t sit down, but still want music playing while I am doing other things..meaning CDs, or streaming.

Byron Jones

I’ve been a record collector for around fifty years if my old memory serves me right. Rock, country, blues, just about everything. My true love was the Beatles. Collected everything I could. Stereo, mono, special issues and even the lowly bootlegs. Time passed and all of a sudden there was this new contraption called a cd. Small, compact and no popping noise between tracks. A lot clearer. Slowly moved away from vinyl as everyone else had finding a record was getting rare even at my local record store. A few stuck in the corner gathering dust. Years went by and even the cd was making way for online music. Too old for that! Then a few years ago I started noticing records at retail stores; not many but they were coming back. Special heavy vinyl ($). Issues I remember I have in my collection plus special issues, master recordings and the like. Things had to change. I got rid of my 90’s digital equipment and bought vintage equipment in its place. New record storage took the place of all of my cd’s, even though they’re still part of my collection. It seems like after all these years I’ve gotten to where I once belonged!


I have been in bands my whole life. I got into music because of a Fisher Price record player I had when I was 3. I broke away from vinyl when i was about 10 years old and got into CDs.

I’ve gone back to vinyl for many of the same reasons mentioned here. My biggest one is to quit taking music for granted and to quit making it feel so disposable. Streaming services and mp3s are a great way to have music on the go, no doubt. But I found myself caring less about music because of that constant connectivity. It started to feel like nothing more but white noise in the background.

I love today’s technology. I really do. But as a society, we have a drastic in-balance of real life and tech. I have grown to despise my cell phone. I keep it on silent 90% of the day. When playing music off of it, it was never a sit-down and really focus on the music and absorb it. It turned into a background noise while checking e-mails and browsing the web.

I just got my new turntable last week, and I have picked up about 11 albums already as I wait for more to come in. I have a Dennon AVR with standing Polk floor speakers, and I’ve done back to back playbacks between the turntable and Spotify/320kbps Mp3s. Vinyl wins hands down. I honestly can’t listen to certain albums in the car anymore because of it.

Getting back to vinyl has really helped me reconnect with music and really reminded me why I fell in love with it in the first place. There is something about having to put real honest effort into hearing your albums that pulls you closer to it. The care and maintenance for the table and LPs, the dialing it in to get the correct sound without distortion… and for me, the best part, turning down the lights, turning off the phone, and really absorbing the music.



Dave Eaton

I have been buying vinyl since 1970 and have always loved thumbing through records when looking to buy as it reminds me of the record shops we used to hang around as kids and the covers were always works of art not like the plastic boxes with cds,I am also into cds as I love the clarity of sound,we used to take albums to each other’s houses to listen to them with mates and to school when we played them in art class as the teacher was a muso like us

John Thomas

For sure, the sound seems warmer with more depth. Plus, there is just something about the sound of the needle drop.

Also, for me its the care one has to take with the LPs. They are like babies or puppies. You care for them properly and they reward your efforts.

Brian Ormond

I am recently retired and rediscovering my love for audio. I love vinyl for the experience, ownership, warmth of sound and the overall journey it is taking me on. There is very little I can do to improve the sound of digital. Sure I can replace my CD player and or DAC and possibly interconnects, but making improvements to vinyl without replacing the turntable is very possible which results in a journey. I can upgrade the arm ,cartridge, sub platter, pulley, platter and perhaps both record weight and counter weight. Each upgrade results in a new listening experience and one leads to another which is both fun and rewarding. Bottom line, vinyl is fun!

Donn Rutkoff

It takes a little education, a little investment in ttrntbl arm cartridge etc. A VPI 16.5 vacuum cleaner for used records. Not needed for new ones. Then, the sound of good LPs why. Not all lps. some are poor, either mastered for AM radio, or pressed into crappy vinly. that is why you have to do a little research, read up. there is a great article about the chem composition of LPs, on web site vinyl engine. titled composition of vinyl records, written by Vince1, posted Oct 19 2017. Highly recommend it so u know what to do and not do with vinyl.


i still have a bunch of my old lps, used to love going to the music stores and flipping thru the racks , i am glad to see they are making a comeback, only problem is the price when i used to pay 5 to 10 for an lp is now costing 30 to 40 or more . i think that the lps sound better than the cd versions ,but just my opion.

Thomas M

Vinyl is like a menu with 5 courses.
CD is like 3 courses.
MP3 and streaming like fast food.
I used to take the best food 😉


I would add that records have a better sound quality at the extreme bass and treble ends and also it is worth pointing out that new rock and pop records these days are pressed on heavy duty new vinyl whereas in the 1970’s and 1980’s only jazz and classical music was pressed on virgin vinyl and quite often the rock releases were of poor quality. Regarding the cost, it is worth noting that a lot of new releases include a download code so you can get a digital version as well.

Don Esslemont

Vinyl is so organic, both in sound and the tactile feeling of holding the record sleeve. It usually comes with far more information to read than on a CD jewel case.

Graham Sharpe

Buying records fulfills several important aspects of my life……it keeps me connected to my formative years, helps create and maintain a social life by travelling to visit record shops, whilst also enabling me to meet like-minded people when I’m in those shoos.
Not only that, it ensures I keep listening to ‘new’ old vinyl which broadens my knowledge about the period which was most influential in my life and remains so today – the late sixties/early seventies when psych and prog were at their most inventive and fresh.
Graham Sharpe (author of recent book, Vinyl Countdown)

David Wilcomb

All the reasons cited. Add tactile feedback, less processing and the format’s encouraging of longer and more effective attention spans.

Gareth Shields

I have been buying vinyl since I was 7 years old in 1977. I still own most of them, so I love pulling out a record that I’ve purchased years ago that I’ve not listened to in a long time and it really takes me back to a particular moment in my life.
I also try and purchase new releases directly from the band these days. I live in Australia now having grown up in Northern Ireland so postage can be a little pricey, but I get paid well in my job, so I feel the band should be paid appropriately for the work/art that they produce.

Carl Hardy

Vinyl LP should not be replaced by cd or online like amazon apps Spotify

Nikos Gousopoulos



Gramofonové platne počúvam viac ako 50 rokov. Skutočne to funguje tak, že keď som kúpil White album od Beatles, mal som pocit, že tu hudbu skutočne vlastním. Je to ako mať fotografiu, len na monitore alebo fyzicky na fotopapieri. CD nosič napáliš, ale vinyl ? Ten kto prepadol platniam a gramofónu, to nevymení za nič.


Vinyl records are the closes to pure sound, without digital enhancements. Yes CD’s sound good, but it is not pure.


Purchased my first LP in 1963; that was about 6,000 albums ago. Your reasons “hit the nail on the head”. Sound, cover art that you can hold in your hand and actually read without a microscope … Nostalgia.

Steve L.

There is nothing like the sound of vinyl over digital. I’m a little of a purist from the mastering to the cutting to ultimately allowing me to lay that album down on the platter and cueing it up. It’s artful and the way music is meant to be listened to. HiFi till the end!


I grew up on vinyl. With the entry of CDs and now SACDs, I ignored my vinyls. But now, as I return to the format, the music brings back memories of a long gone past. And the audio quality of vinyls, when played on a reasonable system, is much more engaging, sweeter and warmer.

Mike Lashinsky

You get to read about the artist. When it was pressed, Who was involved in making it?


Vinyl does seem expensive but is it though? I stopped buying vinyl in the 1980’s. Back then how much was a record? £3.99 for a single? That’s £20 in today’s money which is an annoying calc I think. When you remember paying £3.99 and now its £20+ it does feel like a rip off. The problem is CD’s are so cheap. But you can’t even compare something like Quadrophenia in vinyl to its CD version, much less streamed music. Vinyl is more but it is also so much more and I miss the excitement and the ritual of buying a record in Woolworth’s say and watching the sales assistant magically pluck the right record from the sea of white behind her, taking it out of its sleeve to inspect it before marrying it up to its cover. That’s how it was and a new record from your favourite singer or band – it was so exciting and young people really miss out on this feeling. And second hand record shops…so much fun.


Hmm, I can still find LPs for 25 cents at a local place which will remain nameless, and they are often in great condition (ok, to be fair, mainly classical). My best find ever? An complete boxed set of Beethoven’s Symphonies on the Grammophon label with Herbert von Karajan conducting) and in mint condition and I’m not exaggerting, for 95 cents!!!


I love vinyl LPs for many reasons. The biggest reason? Because I grew up listening to them in the ’70s and the connection I feel to that time from keeping them around. I love the artwork! I love being able to hold them in my hands, they have substance, unlike CDs, just a small little case with an itsy bitsy picture. I love the imperfectness of them, the static that gives them warmth, not the cold perfection of digital. Yes, they are higher maintenance, but I like the involvement, it makes me feel closer to the music. Do I get an A English teacher? Hah.


Yes I Agree With You Roger

Marek Urbanowicz

In the Spring of 1969 I’d been lucky enough to see Janis Joplin perform at the Albert Hall in London; a few days later Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green and also BB King. I was desperate to own a record player so that I could listen to this kind of music. Fortunately my 16th birthday wasn’t long after this and I persuaded my parents to buy a dansette record player. It was the best present they had ever bought me though they probably regretted it since Bob Dylan at full volume wasn’t their kind of music!!. Prior to that I had an old wind up 78 record player and bought old shellac records in junk shops. With the arrival of a proper record player I could at last buy some contemporary music. 52 years later I now own over a 1,000 records with a high end hifi system. I still enjoy the process of which album do I select, the artwork on the cover, which side to start with (or maybe only one side), the feel of it in my hand, the unwrapping process, using the anti-static gun, cleaning the record, placing it on the turntable, carefully aligning the stylus and sitting back and immersing myself in the music. Can’t be beaten for the sheer pleasure of it. Wins hands down over CD’s. Fantastic to witness the vinyl revival.


When you have completed your search at the used Vinyl store, found the perfect Album, take it home, take it out of the sleeve and put it on the platter. It’s an EVENT, way better than swiping some screen.

Richard Litson

I started buying vinyl in the early ’70s, and have kept most of my records, but rarely play them. I’m a collector of certain music mainly from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. I have been coaxed back to vinyl by record companies: I’ve bought various box sets recently that included vinyl whether I wanted it or not (eg Gene Clark’s ‘No Other’; The Go-Between’s ‘G Stands For Go-Betweens 1&2’; The Beach Boys ‘Smile’ sessions). Whether vinyl will prove to be an improved, or at least different, listening experience for me after 30 years of CDs, I’m about to find out; I bought myself a new turntable for Christmas.

Ben Wynne

I have listened too many variations of my favourite album “war of the worlds”. First time when I was a teenager on vinyl then the whole cassette then DVD (never had it on 8 track though) now have the remastered vinyl and the sounds are incomparable

Ben Wynne

The whole process starting with buying an album through to the superb sound. Satisfying as you carefully remove from sleeve place on deck. Total stress reliever

[…] hope that vinyl continues to have a meaningful place in the market, as I believe it’s the best way to experience music. However, there are threats to this […]
