Vinyl does tend to have a different quality of sound---rounder? warmer? deeper? It's like watching a beautifully timed film print versus an HD video. They may be equally sharp and clear, but aesthetically the analog version "feels" better. Something intangible is missing from the digital copy.
Yes. Gone gone gone. The owner/operator offered the whole kit and caboodle for sale before he permanently closed the site. I mean, the studio equipment, records, domain name/website...everything! The price was too high for me to even think about; talk about an opportunity! Obviously there were no takers, at least none that kept the internet station going. Sad.
Your description of the sound of vinyl is spot on!
