Vinyl records are best known for producing a higher quality sound than that of a CD or MP3, because they are recorded directly from the analogue source. Apart from this sonic value they hold both an aesthetic and a collectability value too. All these aspects taken into account, it’s no surprise that vinyl records – prominent throughout the 20th century – are making a huge comeback nowadays. Here at BVPP we’re not just all vinyl-lovers and audiophiles, but utter perfectionists as well. And thus constantly aiming for next level industry standards in pressing your records.
Most of the music today is broadcast in some lossy format, where details are missed and the overall audio quality reduced. In order to store hundreds (of thousands) of audio files on a phone (or stream online), they are made significantly smaller (hence more inferior) by compressing them. When pressing a vinyl record no audio data gets lost, sounding just as great as the producer or artist originally intended, making it the only audio format capable of superior high-quality.
That’s completely up to you: check our colours… No, seriously, vinyl records are made of PVC and currently there just isn’t any eco-friendly material yet that gives the same sound quality. However, the environmental credentials of vinyl records may be stronger than you might think! We tend to have quite a unique relationship with this form of plastic, vinyl records are rather seen as ‘non-disposable’ products. They come under the category of things that we will keep for years and years and even pass on to our children and grandchildren because they have such a long lasting lifecycle. Music on a tangible form like a vinyl record must be treasured because that –according to us– is true ‘sustainability’. And now feel free to check out our colours.
