I don't know if it's a fad statement for the younger generations to just have this physically large artifact that's made the comeback and looks kinda cool. That they don't necessissarily want to invest in the equipment to play it. Or maybe some think that they can sell it at a profit because of the current popularity. It's good and bad for us true devotee's of the medium. Good that the revival is reaching youth's interests, bad that the products prices have increased with the popularity.
Maybe they're resellers. I suppose they could also be people who inherited a number of albums from relatives and are keeping them for their sentimental value, rather than a genuine desire to hear the music. That number still seems high to me, and I question its validity.
