I'm sick of everyone taking advantage of the vinyl market. People are barely buying music as it is, yet they feel the need to exploit people.
Is it really exploitation if people are willing to pay it? Why is music basically the only commodity held to these standards? The Chipotle burrito you buy isn't really made up of things that = $9, the Playstation 4 is sold with a profit margin. Things are priced where people are going to buy them ... at the intersection of supply and demand ... it's not being sold for charity.
I agree that vinyl prices are going up -- but that's because demand is going up and they can charge more and make more money. There's a philosophical question about what the profit should be on any product ... but we can't just apply it to vinyl arbitrarily.
