„Sales of vinyl albums have been climbing steadily for several years, tromping on the notion that the rebound was just a fad. Through late November, more than 2.1 million vinyl records had been sold in 2009, an increase of more than 35 percent in a year, according to Nielsen Soundscan. That total, though it represents less than 1 percent of all album sales, including CDs and digital downloads, is the highest for vinyl records in any year since Nielsen began tracking them in 1991.“ (NY Times)
A possibly reason for the increase could be the quality of the analogue sound mentioned Rachelle Friedman, the co-owner of J&R Music:
‚It’s all these kids that are really ramping up their vinyl collections,‘ Ms. Friedman said. ‚New customers are discovering the quality of the sound. They’re discovering liner notes and graphics.‘ In many instances, the vinyl album of today is thicker and sounds better than those during vinyl’s heyday in the 1960s and 1970s.“ (NY Times)
Meanwhile, the sales of CD’s have been falling fast caused of the digital revolution.
„Sales of CDs, meanwhile, have been falling fast, displaced by the downloading of digital files of songs from services like iTunes. Sales of albums on CD, which generally cost half as much as their vinyl counterparts, have dropped almost 20 percent this year, according to Nielsen.“ (NY Times)
