I've been learning a lot about collecting vintage vinyl from this forum. Soon I'll embark on a Frank Sinatra project, gathering the best editions of his Capitol LP's from the 1950s. Everyone talks about the benefits of this analog medium -- the warmth and presence and easy naturalism of the sound, etc. But no one mentions the downside. When one buys vintage vinyl, there is noise. Even a sealed copy of a 1955 pressing, when it is unsealed, can suffer from some degree of snap crackle and pop. Aren't you distracted by it? How do you get rid of it? Isn't it true you can't get rid of it completely? Isn't minimizing it (with a nice clean or sealed copy) the best one can expect?
