at the risk of redundancy, digital and vinyl are diffferent. one is not better than the other. so as to avoid being accused of either being a pedant or of sounding overly didactic, i will say that when one discusses aesthetic endeavors--art, food, movies, books audio, e.g., it is often arbitrary to say that one instance is better than another. again as an example, to say that one movie is better than another is philosophical in nature, an opinion and cannot be proven.
i know, a lot cannot be proven and we are entitled to my oponions.
i have been accused of many things,--iconoclast, lousy ears, contrary, etc. .
the point is the realm of audio is entirely philosophical.
there is no definitive conclusion to a philosophical argument.
enjoy your vinyl, assert that vinyl is better than digitla. its a matter of taste.
when using the word better, it helps to define what is good, better and best.
audiophiles will differ as to these things.
i'm ready for any invectives that come my way.
i believe what i learned in during my time in college in which i was enrolled in two philosophy courses justifies my position.
you may disagree.
