Vi-nil? Is that kind of Ice Cream flavour? I've heard of speaker cones, is it anything to do with that? :)
Won't somebody PLEASE think of the children?

I still listen to vinyl. Both new releases, but mostly old stuff. That's because the pretentious production technique snob in me want to listen to recordings on the medium they were originally recorded, mixed and mastered for. But also I like hard copies, and the ritual of putting the disc on the turn table and put the needle to the vinyl.

There's nothing rational about it. Other than that I find it more comfortable to listen to vinyl in headphones. My ears get less tired after hours of listening, but that has less to do with the medium itself than the modern, loud, earbreaking production style of the day.

Also, cover art looks better on vinly. :)

Agreed, especially on specials like this one :

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO what a ride'

Older productions suited vinyl. More warmth and feel, less over-emphasis on high end and detail, which is vinyl's Achilles Heel.

It's not just me but I noticed the vinyl copy of Strawberry Fields Forever, on the 'blue' Beatles compilation LP, sounded warmer than that of the CDs. A like-for-like comparison between record and CD players similar in price point, age and quality. Slight record rumble may or may not have influenced.
