The New York Times reports that vinyl records and turntables have been making a steady resurgence for the past few years, driven by demand from members of the digital generation.  Vinyl’s increased popularity is attributed to factors like sound quality, and the eternal allure of its tangible, collectible form, liner notes, and of course – album art.  It has also created a parallel rebirth for the turntable.

The music industry has noticed and responded, with popular artists like Lady GaGa, 50 Cent and Norah Jones adding vinyl to their new release repertoire.  Vinyl sales have made a small but visible mark within the music industry.
