Satisfying your music groove

turntableWe’ve gone through a music revolution that you may not even have realized you were a part of, but the team at East Hamilton Radio (E.H.R.) in Hamilton know it happened. In fact, they’ve ensured that they have the latest products and technology so they have exactly what people are looking for.

From die hard audiophiles and casual music collectors to karaoke car singers and isolated listeners, how we listen to music has changed drastically. Once upon a time we use to listen to 8-track tapes, vinyl, cassettes and CDs, but today, most people listen to digital music either downloaded or streamed from the Internet. Music streaming services like Spotify, Songza and Deezer, allows you to listen to your favourite music anywhere and everywhere. Carrying your music library around with you has never been easier, since most people use their smart phone to listen to music.

Whether in the car, at work, hanging out or doing chores, music always seems to be playing in the background, and how much music we listen to has also changed. According to Nielsen’s Music 360 2014 study, 93 per cent of the U.S. population listens to music, spending more than 25 hours a week listening to their favourite tunes. While these may be American stats, it’s pretty safe to say Canadians’ are listening just as much, if not more. Our music is incredibly portable, but the days of bulky cassette and CD players are gone. Today, most people use their smart phone to plug in and get their groove on, but don’t rule out turntables and vinyl. Having made a successful comeback, more and more artists are releasing new albums on vinyl. There’s something to be said for the warm sound that comes from an LP. If you’re looking to purchase a new turntable, have your old one repaired, visit E.H.R. for a great lineup of products and a full-service repair shop. And don’t forget to check out the Vinyl Zone at E.H.R. for their great selection of old favourites and new releases.
