STATES CHRONICLE – Certain music formats have come and gone, but this is not the case of vinyl. Mini discs, cassette tapes, and 8-tracks had their moment of glory, only to disappear and to be replaced by more modern formats. However, this vintage remained alive both for old school and modern people, so Sony decided to revive the production of such records in Japan.
Vintage air and better sound quality
Many people say the sound you get from a vinyl is purer and, by all means, they are right. Therefore, there are still plenty of music shops where you can purchase such records, and most artists release their music on vinyl as well.
Vinyl record players are also easy to buy, so you can find these products almost everywhere. This type of format is enjoyed not only by vintage people who love bringing up the past, but also by modern people who want their music delivered in high quality.
Therefore, music fans from Japan will soon have more options to purchase such records from. After ceasing their production some time ago, Sony decided to get back into business and bring back these types of records in its home country. Therefore, the older engineers are back to work with a more advanced technology and produce the best vinyls on the market.
Vinyl sales are now soaring
In 2008, vinyl sales still represented a small part of the music market but, since then, they have been increasing their popularity until reached a new milestone. Vinyl sales now produce 3.6 percent of the music profit all over the world.
In fact, vinyls made such a comeback that record companies all over the world couldn’t cope with such a high demand. While people still buy digital music and subscribe to streaming services, they also love having their favorite tunes in this format. Therefore, Sony will bring back the old engineers to pass on their knowledge about vinyl manufacturing.
