I agree, most often, old is preferred. Seems like so much of what we have has been thinned down, shaved to squeeze out more profit. 6.5 ounce Cokes were the best. We called 'em pistols. Once Coke went through the "New Coke/Coke Classic transition, it came back with high fructose corn syrup, where it'd been made with sugar before. Close, but no cigar. The corn syrup was cheaper, but the flavor isn't there. Last I heard, they still use sugar in the recipe for South America. Hey, maybe with the increase in corn prices, they'll have to go back to sugar here too! Ever notice how wheel sizes on vehicles have been slowly creeping up? Give it a few more years we'll be back to wagon wheels!
Oh, an, while it depends on the person, many feel vinyl sounds better than CD's. Some recording artists have actually taken measures to keep some of the so-called "noise" in their recording to recapture the output quality of vinyl, as well as using computer programs to "warm" their recordings.
It's not all bad. I jam on my iPod all the time. It's convenient and easy, but when I want to relax and have some quality time, I pull out the Califone turntable and some choice vinyl. Many of the conveniences we have do give up the nth degree of quality, but you get most of the function without the cost or exclusivity that once was the rule. For the masses, good enough is good enough, .......................as long as it's cheap enough.
