Scott joins Leo to talk about how Vinyl records are making a comeback. Over 14 million vinyl records were sold last year, a 9% increase and over 12% growth over the last decade. He saw a news item about a company in Austria that has created a new way to make records. Scott says a ceramic stamper is able to make the same record from the first to 10,000th pressing, making it less frequent to replace it. There's also a new format called HD Vinyl, which claims to expand dynamic range of a recording by 30%. But Scott says that vinyl is still a soft material that can get scratched, warped, and dust that can cause pops when listening. But many think that's the character of vinyl.
