    I agree that LCD still hasn't caught up to CRT. If LCDs weren't so small I don't think they would have ever caught on. Better colors, better black levels, better viewing angles; about the only thing LCDs "win" at is sharpness.


    And vinyl do sound better than CDs. Just because something is new doesn't make it better.

    I have yet to see an LCD monitor that I like better than a Trinitron CRT.

    It just seems impossible to get even colour from top to bottom. If I draw something in light grey on a white background in Illustrator on a my CRT then drag it to my LCD I have to move my head up and down to see it at all on the LCD.

    LCDs on laptops are even worse because there's such a small horizontal band where the colours are half decent you're constantly tripping the screen forward and back to get the contrast to look right.


    Just because it's newer doesn't make it better.


    Although... I find tape annoying and vinyl terribly impractical so I'll stick with purely digital audio Smiley
