Hahahaha... good one. Listen, in one of my other current lives, I'm a DJ.
Not a new-school "what's vinyl" DJ! If I made enough money, I'd be buying
$100 a month in new vinyl, likely.
The pops and clicks are NOT the warmth in the vinyl for me... but nearly
EVERYTHING else is. BUT, :)
That said, well pressed vinyl with low volume clicks do sometimes come off
as warmer to me.
As for oldy-McOlderson types making claims about the noise making it vivid
and real... appearantly they never hear the performances live... no pops
or clicks ;) I hated how some records I'd listen to had enough clicks that
I eventually just remembered them as part of the song. When I'd hear them
in another venue (radio, mp3/digital repro', etc) I would mentally put the
noise in the track... but not hear it... hahaha
