After Three Decades, Sony Returns to Vinyl

When it comes to music, are you into vinyl?

Apparently more and more people - of all ages - are playing vinyl records.

According to the consulting firm Deloitte, during 2017 vinyl sales will enjoy double-digit growth...for the seventh consecutive year. In fact, analog plastic disks will account for nearly 18% of all non-digital music sales – totaling nearly $900 million this year.

Sony is tooling up to resume producing vinyl records by next spring. The company suspended making vinyl in 1989 in favor of CD production. According to CNN, Sony is bringing in older ex-employees to pass along hard-to-find expertise.
