Volume control is more consistent with vinyl. I don't get to just open the player on the pc and see what's playing, timer etc. I have to just sit there and let it take care of itself until the LP is finished. Then the music just stops, the turn table returns to it's resting place and I am left wondering with, I guess it's time for me to get up and do something. . . .I like it though. Records are more consistent in quality it seems.
