Not everyone has a passion to keep vinyl clean or listen to the (rare or many) clicks and pops they present or get up and flip it when one side is done or pay the price it takes to make vinyl sound better that CD. Another thing is with vinyl you HAVE to listen to every song, even if you don’t like it. CD, you can skip what you don’t like (probably a major reason why CD sells are bottoming out and streaming is so popular).
Don’t but an LP if you don’t like most of the tracks on it, buy SINGLES with one track per side or EPs with few tracks per side, buy what you like.
If you want a vinyl turntable act like a CD with programmable function to play only selected tracks from each side of the LP then look for automatic turntables like Technics SL15
You can also have two turntables like many of us, it’s easy to play next track on another turntable and switch between the tables on the phono stage input selector (just like the deejays on the radio).
But if you’re too lazy and all you need is background music nonstop then you don’t need vinyl, you need digital (streamed audio). You can also record your own playlist from your vinyl collection.
But i don’t understand how all that digital BS can replace a vinyl collection ?
P.S. When anyone is talking about clicks and pops of the vinyl media i can say for sure that this person is not a vinyl lover. I don’t clean my vinyl as a fanatic, they are just in perfect condition more or less, i use brush each time i play them, most of them are 40 years old, but i can’t hear any serious clicks and pops that makes me think of a digital alternative to playback music, no way.
It’s like claiming that tape has some sort of hiss.
This is a nanure of analog media!
