Turntables and Other Old-School Components Keep on Grooving

The Wall Street Journal has posted a great article on analogue high-end stereo and the fans that are keeping it alive: The home stereos that refuse to die.

Vinyl’s small but significant comeback, which we wrote about here together with the explosion in deluxe boxsets (sales rose 100% last year) reinforce the idea that music lovers are willing to spend, as long as what they are spending their money on is high quality.

We’re especially pleased to see one of our customer’s set ups, featured in the Wall Street piece. If you’re not prone to hi-fi envy, Atane has provided to link so you can see more of his, truly stunning, set-up here.
