    New Vinyl or CD ?

    With these great new FTD Vinyl releases i wondered where ur preferences lay now, new vinyl or the new remastered cds, which wins on packaging and sound ?
    I know vinyl used to sound fuller well how do these new ones sound ?

    The Jungle Room Sessions & SRO are superb vinyl releases - if you've got a good vinyl set-up nothing beats it!

    Glad you liked it. My turntable is a PRO-JECT JUKEBOX with a built in amp,plus two Q Acoustics speakers and that's it it all depends on how much you are prepared to spend but the sound on my set-up is very pleasing to my ears. I think the sound does compare to CD,if at all it's better, warmer and bigger sounding. I just got the new Jimi Hendrix VALLEYS OF NEPTUNE on vinyl and that sounds awesome.

    Like I say if you can afford a good set-up you will be rewarded with gorgeous sound especially the 180gm vinyl pressings available.

    Cheers,

    You know I would love too (if funds allowed) get a great record player setup but I simply don't have the time or cash.

    Its a task enough staying caught up with the Follow That Dream Cd's, I look at the vinyls as a collectors thing, I stick with Cd's. Better sounding imo. But can easily understand the attraction.

    Maybe one day you may have the cash – vinyl is definitely worth the investment
