Additionally, over 670K albums have been sold in 2009. The LA Times reports that in one of the most highly populated cities in the world, record sales are growing, more record stores are opening and business is booming with collectors and casual listeners alike as clientele. All of these record sales are pushing integrators to offer turntables for their clients, which might also help the sales of records in a feedback loop.
While CD sales have been on a consistent decline since the emergence of digital download services like iTunes, vinyl seems to be making up a portion of the CD losses. A CD cost approximately $14 while a vinyl LP averages around $23. The music industry has taken notice and is re-mastering versions of their best selling albums complete with the original artwork.
One thing is for sure; vinyl is experiencing a welcome reemergence for a larger audience of music collectors.
