About Vinyl Records
Sound vibrations are transmitted to a needle or stylus. This in turn cuts a groove into a wax record as it revolves. Depending on the music being recorded, the stylus will carve out various depths and widths. Each record has their own unique groove.
A vinyl record is an analog recording. Unlike CD's that are digital, Analog recordings can capture the entire sound wave where as digital only recreates snapshots of the analog sound.
Because of the way they were made, many people associate vinyl records with a warm and rich sound. Although at times, LPs and 45s are inconvenient to play and expensive to maintain. It is an old technology that is still being appreciated up until today.
