Is Vinyl Making a Comeback?

How to Replace a Record Player Cartridge

At this point, almost everyone knows about vinyl’s Lazarus moment. For a medium that seemed to be on the way out some 20 years ago, 2018 marked the 13th consecutive year of growth in vinyl sales, with a Nielson-era record (no pun intended) 16.8 million LPs sold. That is a 14.6 percent jump from the previous year, and the trend shows no signs of this vinyl comeback letting up.
