Everything old is new again, as records come back in style.
So says Rolling Stone, which reports that record labels EMI and Universal are reissuing their best-selling back catalog titles on vinyl as listeners ditch CDs for vinyl.
Josh Bizar, marketing director at Music Direct, a company that specializes in “everything analog” (turntables and needles to new vinyl to record-cleaning products) says a lot of new music on LP is available and big-box retail chains are carrying a few entry-level turntables from major companies like Sony and Panasonic. Music Direct carries some 40 models.
That sounds like good news for engineers looking to obtain styli and other parts for the one turntable many stations still maintain.
