The digital age has brought with it an assortment of conveniences. However, for musical puritans the CD or MP3 simply lacks the natural clarity that can only be found when the needle hits the grooves.

“The sound quality is way better. You get more of a clear true sound,” Vintage Vinyl & Hemp Emporium manager Dylan Baumet told the Times-Herald on Wednesday.

Baumet, 21, said the vinyl record is indeed again becoming more popular despite technological advancements. He said digital music quality is diminished through compression and is not as pure as the analogue sound.

“They’re making a huge comeback and we sell a lot of vinyl.”

Fortunately for Moose Javians, Vintage Vinyl (a staple of downtown Regina since 1991) has celebrated its 20th anniversary by expanding operations to the Friendly City on June 16. Baumet’s father, Pat Baumet, owns the business, which buys and sells used records of every genre.
