I find vinyl to be a labor of love. You have to love the tweaking. You also need a so a substantial setup that really is synergistic, the arm, the cartridge, the table, good isolation. Isolation is important regardless, but more so with vinyl. Stylus only last so long sounding their best. It is laborious. So you have to love it. If you do, you will be rewarded with the best natural sound which is these days open to interpretation. I personally enjoy vinyl better when everything is just right. More air, realism, strings sound amazing, I have never heard a digital player really get strings right. However, all that being said, digital is very easy, open the CD drawer put the CD in, you are done, sit back and listen. If you get the interconnects right it can be quite enjoyable and it is getting much better.
