We are so used to buying albums on vinyl, but how much are we really paying?
According to a new study by researchers at Cornell University, vinyl is now more valuable than CDs in a new way.
According to the researchers, when they broke down a vinyl record by the year it was made, the price per unit was actually about 2.5 times the average price of CDs in 2016.
In other words, a $20 record was worth about $600 in 2017.
(This is in addition to the $40 record from a decade earlier that was worth only $1,200.)
In other terms, when it comes to how much a record is worth today, CDs are still king.
If a vinyl box is worth $10 in 2018, it is worth about twice as much in 2019 as it is today.
It is also a lot more valuable today.
And the more expensive a record, the more valuable it is going to be when it finally hits stores.
The study, which has been published in the Journal of Music Theory, looked at all types of vinyl records, including vinyl CDs, vinyl records that are sold in brick-and-mortar stores, and vinyl records in digital format.
It found that the value of vinyl varies by genre.
A CD might be worth $1 to $1.50 on the charts, but that’s not going to last forever.
Vinyl records are more likely to last through the 20th century, the researchers found.
And that’s when the market shifts from CDs to vinyl.
For the first time, researchers looked at the value per unit of different types of record.
Vinyl CDs, like vinyl records and MP3s, were valued on the basis of their number of songs and how many songs were on each.
But when it came to the number of individual songs, a CD was valued at a higher rate than vinyl.
So when a record had more than one song, it was worth more.
So if a record was made in the early 1900s, it would probably be worth less than $1 at the time of purchase.
The researchers also looked at how often each song appeared on a vinyl album, how many times each song was played, and how much each song cost.
It turns out that if a vinyl disc has more than 25 songs, it has more value.
It was worth $3.85 in 2019, the year the study began.
The number of plays is more important when it come to the value the price of a record.
A record with just one song can be worth anywhere from $2.50 to $10.
A new record with 20 songs will be worth more than $15.
But the price for a vinyl LP or vinyl record that has 25 or more songs is much more valuable.
The average price for these albums is about $5.
In the study, researchers also analyzed how often different artists and labels released new albums and reissues of older records.
If the artist released an album in the 1980s or early 1990s, for example, it could be worth around $10 to $50.
But if the label released a new album in 2017, it might cost less than the average vinyl record at $2 or less.
But in 2019 it was about $9.00, which was still about a 10% discount over what a record with 25 or fewer songs would be worth.
The same is true for reissues: A vinyl reissue might cost around $6 to $20.
But a vinyl rerelease from the early 1990 and early 2000s would be almost $30.
Vinyl is also much more popular than CDs.
It has been sold in more stores than CDs for the past 20 years, according to a 2016 study by Nielsen SoundScan.
The survey also found that vinyl is the most popular type of record, accounting for 43% of the vinyl sales.
So vinyl is a great way to save money on a new record.
But don’t forget, it’s still a record that needs to be played to get the full effect.
