Vinyl far from vintage at Rogers Park shop

At Audio Archeology in Rogers Park, all that is old is new again thanks to John Arnsdorff.

After a childhood obsession with 78 records, John decided it was time to put his hobby to work for him..

“We have a whole generation of people whose idea of music is very small,” John says. “It’s an iPod and tiny tiny tiny speakers. And when they sit in front of a big pair of speakers and something coming through an analog amp off of vinyl, they’re amazed this is the same thing they’ve been listening to on their tiny tiny headphones.”

Sure digital has its place John says, but he believes the sound and experience of vinyl is really something special.

While most of the players are vintage, the records run the gambit, from the vintage to the newly pressed. Prices are around 11 dollars and up.
