Vinyl plate (gramplate, vinyl record) is an analog audio data carrier for playing on a vinyl record player, where the sound is stored in a circular disk in the form of a engraved spiral groove of different widths that corresponds to sound vibrations. Moving along the grooves, the needle of the tonomar gramophone vibrates, transmitting the electrical signals that are amplified, and again turning into sound waves. The mechanically-formed groove usually begins closer to the periphery and ends near the center of the disc. Vinyl records may be scratched or deformed if stored incorrectly, but if they are not exposed to heat or mechanical damage, the vinyl plate has the potential to serve for many centuries. With the advent of laser CDs in the 1980's, vinyl records went into the shadows. Lovers of music do not suit their large size with insufficient playback time, their fragility, short-lived and relatively low quality of sound. But subtle connoisseurs and now continue to believe that the analogue sound from the old-fashioned tablets inherent special warmth, vitality, which is not transmitted by digital recording.
