Vinyl Records is the single medium most respected by musicians the world over. Some insisting their music be produced on vinyl ahead of any other medium. There are some very good reasons for this, not the least of which, it is an "analog" medium not digital! This is a very important concept to get your head around. Though digital is popular and convenient, its many limitations fail to impart the soul of the music. If artists are unable to "connect" with their audience on an emotional level, what's the point? We humans hear in "analog". When music is recorded directly to vinyl, and not converted to a digital signal, there are data elements which maintain their full integrity. The trick is, having a turntable and pick up (cartridge) good enough to retrieve these elements. At Rich's Record Emporium, we have just the right instruments to extract this precious information, keeping it in its original "unconverted" analog state, to be transmitted direct from the artist to your soul. Please, come in, sit down, relax, and enjoy the experience. We're confident you'll be extremely happy that you did. "Cheers"
