Which is better – analog or digital recording? Before the advent of digital streaming, analog recording was the king of the airwaves and vinyl record stores are often the go-to places for music lovers. Now, most vinyl records are collector’s items and found only in online stores. In Cagayan de Oro City, a new store has just opened selling vintage vinyl records, turntables and audio equipment. Groove33 located at Don Pacifico Building at the corner of Las Ramblas and Atlantic Streets at Pueblo Business Park is bringing back the glory days of vinyl.
