01:21, Cryoburner whispers: Vinyl recordings can potentially reproduce analog sound better if the source material is analog, but if the source material is already digital it's kind of silly.

03:00, Kynreeve> From what I could gather on this particular release, it's a remastered version of the original 1982 movie score. Vangelis recorded it on analouge magnetic tape, using a mix of analogue and digital synthesizers.
03:07, Kynreeve> Besides the fact that we are here in 2013 with our iPods and limitless copies, I can totally see why people who collect vinyl releases would buy one of 5000 copies of good quality vynil, frail material it may be, even if there is a digital SACD version of it available one clicks away. (I mean I would buy it, if I had such opportunity where I live).
03:17, Kynreeve whispers: Of course it's 2014. I just hate this number, it spells "have fun with the second half of your life"
22:22, Albeyamakiir> Be more positive! "*second third of your life."
