About Used Record Album

The great thing about purchasing a used record album is that the quality of the record does not necessarily degrade with time. Tapes show wear and tear quickly; every time you play a tape, the material is stretched in order to be read, and thus, is weakened. However, even if you store your tapes in a safe, humidity- and temperature-regulated environment and never play them, they will begin to deteriorate within a few years. Studies are inconclusive, but it is believed that CDs are similar. CDs have been shown to wear down over time, even with little to no use. In fact, some researchers predict that all CDs will be rendered inaudible within 20 years of their printing, while others insist that with proper care, the life span of a CD is over 100 years. However, the CD versus vinyl debate is much more complicated than mere durability. A number of music lovers and audiophiles absolutely swear by vinyl, and spend hours every weekend searching for that particular used record album they have their eyes on. This debate really comes down to sound quality, and more specifically to digital versus analog sound. Records utilize analog technology, whereby a physical groove is worn in the record which mimics the recorded sound's waveform. CDs, on the other hand, use digital technology, in which sound is transformed into digital bits of information. This transformation from analog to digital and back again is where record album purists feel that CDs lose sound quality. It should be noted that digital technology is improving, and the more advanced CD forms lose little audio information in the translation process. However, the trend in digital music seems to be moving in the opposite direction, towards mp3s and other forms of music data that are even less true to the original recording than early CDs. Because of this trend towards fast and expendable forms of digital media, it seems that the true audiophiles will still spend their Sunday afternoons searching for the perfect used record album. Most records available will be in either 12' or 7' form, at either 33 1/3 RPM or 45 RPM. Other formats, such as 78 RPM, though highly popular at one time, are less common.
