Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

+ add another resource

You're using npm packages, so we've auto-selected Babel for you here, which we require to process imports and make it all work. If you need to use a different JavaScript preprocessor, remove the packages in the npm tab.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

Use npm Packages

We can make npm packages available for you to use in your JavaScript. We use webpack to prepare them and make them available to import. We'll also process your JavaScript with Babel.

⚠️ This feature can only be used by logged in users.

  h1 Does Vinyl Really Sound Better?

  p So the question remains: Is the love really about the sound, or is it more about nostalgia? We know that they are definitely different in the way they are produced as compared to other media, but do records actually sound better or warmer? 
  p One thing that most experts agree on is that, all things being equal in terms of the sound systems and disc qualities, the everyday user would have a very hard time telling the difference between analog and digital sound. However, it’s the <i>intangibles</i> of playing a record, such as the way the dust affects the sound or the way we can hear the needle at times, that make the experience of listening to vinyl unique.
  p "Some people interpret the lack of top end [on vinyl] and interpret an analog type of distortion as warmth," says Jim Anderson, a Grammy-winning recording engineer and professor at New York University's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. "It's a misinterpretation of it. But if they like it, they like it. That's fine."
  h3 Zeros &amp; Ones v Grooves
   p Initially, it was the vinyl faithful in one corner and those converted to the compact disc in the other. Eventually, the vinyl gang lost that argument in real time as everybody and their neighbor dumped wax like jars of Ebola and switched over to the CD. The vinyl faithful held their ground aesthetically raising one point after another regarding the “warm” sound of vinyl vs. the more “sterile” sound often dripped out by CDs.
   p As has been well documented, these past few years have seen a huge upswing in all things vinyl. Sales are up — and with them so are prices and noses. Snobbery has replaced sympathy for many toting their trusty vinyl backpack. Of course, there are arguments to be made pro and con for both formats. The bottom line, however, should always be about the sound — zeros and ones vs. grooves as it were.
