    Don't waste your time - Androidi are like those people who continue to insist that gramophone records are better than CDs even though they don't even listen to them themselves because actually, as soon as you play it, it's damaged a little bit and it's impossible to keep dust and dirt off something that holds an electrostatic charge so perfectly.


    I was amused however by the argument that LCDs are inferior because his eyes dry out when using them. You might want to try blinking occasionally! I find this too sometimes, but because I'm not a nutjob, I realise that I blink less because I'm able to stare at the LCD for longer and the reason for that is because it is flicker-free and razor sharp.

    There are laser turntables where nothing physical touches the vinyl album, but I have no idea how they sound in comparison. The whole CRT vs. LCD and vinyl vs. CD arguments often leave me wondering whether I'm blind and deaf. I just don't get the "but the colors are so much richer, the sound so much fuller, yadda yadda yadda ...." arguments. Yes, LCDs can look washed out when viewed at an angle, but (I don't know about the rest of you) I don't keep my monitor on the floor near my left foot. It's right in front of my face, and looks just fine. Honestly, I think some (not all) of this is simply some form of nerd retro-elitism. Or I'm just blind and deaf.
