"The end is nigh for the LP" that is all we were told towards the end of the last century, how times have changed. Naim introduced a wonderful record deck, Linn and others have introduced new LP playing devices recently. RIP CD!
I think we've been here before - the fortunes of vinyl tell us nothing intrinsic about where CD goes. CD still outsells vinyl in unit terms, and there was a link posted recently to a story saying US CD sales had recently increased. CD may well die before vinyl, but it's motivated reasoning to claim CD is dead yet.
