[CEO, GZ Media, Michal Sterba, Saying:]
"Lots of people started to buy their own audio systems and started to buy vinyl records as well. Probably because they stayed home and there were not that many other options such as concerts, pubs, bars. The home entertainment was basically the right thing for them to spend money on. I would say that right now the vinyl records is moving from very niche markets of music collectors, music lovers, audiophiles to the wider consumer base representing the young generation who found their way to vinyl across the traditional music listeners."
