"Vinyl records have a unique place in the world of music media," writes Mike of MikeSense.com.
"Aside from their warm analog tone, vinyl is the only popular medium that is nearly impossible to create or duplicate at home -- something that can't be claimed by cassettes, CDs, DVDs, and certainly not mp3s. Not to be an apologist for piracy, this inherently creates more value for recorded music than using an easily reproducible medium (be it physically or digitally) does".
In this article, Mike will show you how vinyl records are made -- and how you can pirate yourself a copy for your own LP player.
