What's next? Let's all go back to watching movies on VHS and old CRTs! It's how the director wanted it to be seen, right? How about analogue cellphones and leaded gasoline?
I still have in use an old Sony 33 inch CRT with Trinitron tube. It's standard definition of course but the quality it's really good, the black is black and the colours are quide good. I don't need a soundbar to get a decent soud, because due the fact the case has to be big, it's not a proble to put in a couple of 16 cm woofers. And sit switches on in seconds because doesn't have to boot a complex OS to enable the 'smart' functions. It' has no DRM functions and the user interface is intuitive.
If I want Smart TV function, I've hooked a Raspberry Pi.
Please let me explain why I should thrash it and buy a tincan-sounding washed picture and bug ridden LCD television?
The long playing has a big advantage on CD and is that due the limitations of the medium it's not feasible go in the loudness compression war that hapens with digital formats, so and older mastering for vynils sounds better with a modern remastering with all the tracks overcompressed and a dynamic range of 6 dB on a 96 dB capable medium, and of course it's really fifficult install malware with a record even if theoretically possible https://upload.wikimedia.org/w...
Normally I listen the FM radio with my cellphone. first of all there are some news and interview programmes thar are quite interesting or *gasp* I like in the summer afternoon listen at the football and basket radio description while jogging or walking the dog.
I could surely use the streaming service from the radio but: normally I jog in the countryside so it's possible to have poor cellular coverage or only 2G coverage, but more importantly FM radio battery consumption is way lower than having to leave the 3G/4G data transfer on, not to mention to save the data cap.
Of course I have always the solution to take back my old MP3 player+FM radio and the smartphone and solve my problem, but actually the deal maker for my current cellphone was the FM Radio Option
