I have a midrange SACD player, an Esoteric K-05, and I find myself putting on a cd to listen to while I do something else and then being drawn to my listening chair and listening for a couple of hours regularly.
If someone believes that all vinyl systems sound better than digital or that all digital systems sound better than vinyl, they are badly mistaken.
Some people prefer vinyl and that's great. Enjoy yourself. But understand that unless you're at the state of the art, there are a lot of digital systems out there that sound better than your vinyl system and vice versa.
As far as convenience goes, there's no question that digital is much less work. But that's not the only reason that people listen to it. Digital can sound great. And many vinyl people talk about liking vinyl because of the smell of the vinyl, the tweaking, the album artwork, etc. Things that have nothing to do with sound.
So why can't we just say that both formats can sound great or not so great and not have to say that our preference is the best?
