I totally agree. There is something nice about the whole process and the sound quality is really good for what is essentially grooves on a plastic plate.
There's also something nice about the tea ceremony around setting up a record to listen to. To listen to a record, you have to really want to listen to it, go to the effort of setting it up and you can't skip around tracks. It forces me to listen through albums in their entirety and there's just something nice about the whole procedure that makes no sense but I like it anyway.
I also love mechanical stuff and with vinyl the sound waves I am listening to are literally engraved into the disc.
