Got some terrible sounding picture discs from the 80s and 90s but beyond that don't find it makes any difference.

An argument isn’t merely contradiction...

But, you only get truly deep inky blacks on virgin black vinyl.

But virgin black vinyl isn't virgin black...it's only black 'cos carbon black has been added to the vinyl. Most records are only black because shellac was black. Through  the 40s and early 50s many records were coloured. :pint:

PS picture discs in the 70s/80s were just that - pictures were pressed into the vinyl. I have the original picture disc/album...Curved Air - Air Conditioning, it came in a clear plastic bag(still have it). It was unlistenable and still is :sos:. I believe it's worth a few bob now, though?

No it can’t. An argument is a connected series of statements so as to establish a proposition. Contradiction is merely opposing what the other person said. 

[apologies that is from memory so the exact lines may be a tad different :) ]

I have the original Sgt Peppers picture disc, and Abbey road, both sound dire, from 1979 if I remember correctly. Modern coloured vinyl seems to all sound good, well the ones I have do :)

Keith doesn't listen to vinyl. We're safe.

Why would there be an argument? It's perfectly obvious that red vinyl sounds warmer than blue. Just like CDs sound bright because they're silver.

Can’t argue with perfect logic!

If I have a choice of black or coloured for new vinyl I go for the black because coloured is sometimes crap. Unless it's by Music on Vinyl in which case it will be excellent whatever the colour.

All vinyl is colored but clear is not.
