Paul Choi in The Analog Aesthetic or the Vinyl Manifesto:


  I began to think about the idea of evolving design surrounding a technology largely deemed “obsolete.” Yes, digital is more convenient and ubiquitous, accessible and democratic. But most will tell you — beyond the little hiss that happens from the flecks of dust playing — that vinyl sounds more real, warmer, fuller. Analog attempts to capture the sound as it is and does not convert it in some way — no matter how great the means of conversion.


It’s a good post on what makes vinyl (which I also love) great, and it includes some interesting implications for graphic design.
