I'm beginning the process of rebuilding my record collection. I am surprised by the noticeable difference in quality between digital and analog. I realize this has never been 'news' necessarily, but I recently had the opportunity to compare the two for myself and was surprised. I can't believe I've put up with digital music for as long as I have. It would seem the only advantage to digital music is its convenience, which is hardly advantageous if sound quality is sacrificed.

Here are some of the albums I am hoping to add or return to my collection:
