Vinyl-desireability can only get stronger, but, yes, vinyl is in great threat .Desireability is not enough. Sheer numbers of green-behind-the-ears shitheads will always win in the end. The horde always does.
When the old silver-beards die-off in the next two decades or so, Shithead will conquer.
I think the interest in the latter has peaked. It took a decade or so for the Youth to realize they are being short-shifted (shafted, really) in paying an exhorbitant $40 for a poor quality product. (At least those who actually PLAY the lps).
The two stores that I frequent , I almost never see younger customers - even though the stores are well-stocked with current fad remaster-type gubbins-vinyl. Blind Chile sees only the aforementioned old-git silver beards and baldie-paunches. And, like myself, these elder customers are only flipping used fuzzay warbles.
If your a dedicated collector, you are always on the hunt for hot sauce seldom encountered. You never finish rebuilding your collections.
Youngsters however - one would think - do not come in with heavy wantslists.
