Sony and Philips killed Vinyl. The manufacturers of Vinyl pressing equipment (e.g. Alpha Toolex from Sweden) were required to stop building record presses as a condition in licence contracts for the production of CD manufacturing equipment. Furthermore the customers of the equipment manufacturers were forced by contract to scrap their Vinyl presses (if they had any) as a condition of purchase of CD manufacturing machines.

And yes, the major labels also liked the idea of re-releasing all their back- catalog on CD.
