RECORD RE­VIVAL

Australian T3 - - HOT 100 -

Neil Young might reckon it’s a fash­ion thing, but then Rusty’s got his Pono mu­sic player to pro­mote. The truth is, vinyl is surg­ing. Sales ex­ploded in 2014 and press­ing plants can’t keep up with de­mand. There’s another ar­gu­ment that says it’s purely about nos­tal­gia for some sort of imag­ined au­dio su­pe­ri­or­ity, but when 20-some­things who have never bought a vinyl record be­fore are rav­ing about its warmer sound, you’ve got to won­der. $MORE THAN IT USED TO BE. TURNTABLE PIC­TURED: REGA RP3, $1,099, OUT NOW
