The Easy Sell: Second spin

Rock on

Neil was right—rock ’n’ roll will never die. Just look at your vinyl collection: no longer collecting dust, it’s ready for its comeback tour. Nielson SoundScan reports that vinyl sales for the first half of 2013 are up 28% over last year and higher than they’ve been in decades. If this puts you in the mood to spin “Cortez the Killer,” check out McIntosh’s MT5 turntable. The friction-free tone arm, low-output cartridge, and dampened platter come ready to roll, right out of the box. As for rock cred: the Binghampton, N.Y.–based McIntosh Labs designed the famous Wall of Sound tour amps for the Grateful Dead. They can handle a living room.
