Annnnnddd - here we go again. If you are educated enough, have deep enough pockets, and are willing to take the massive amount of time to learn HOW to assemble a truly fine audio system for vinyl - you will enjoy tremendously what you hear. If you want easy access to decent sound, although squished and then tarted up - but easy to access, store, etc. - then buy all means, stick with digital. You will get used to the *fast-food* but still nutritious diet it provides. Frankly, most of the music heard in this house is LIVE - practicing, rehearsals, etc. Many years ago, we dismantled that vinyl system that lived in DH's music studio, and took over a thousand vinyls into the basement. Some found other homes - and we changed all the storage in his studio, gained a lot of footage for rehearsals, and put in shelves for 5,000 CDs, and all the print music for piano, etc. My studio has all things FLUTE - all my instruments, about forty feet of shelves of flute music/chamber music with flute, and all the flute CDs - and yeah - cassette tapes of us I need to transcribe. New digital recordings we make of ourselves sound good - but not as good as us live. My adult son is a recording engineer (among other musical things) and he could make them better - and faker if we wished - but we need the reality check for our self-improvement Yes, there are musicians whose incorporation of digital effects, etc. is part of the music. And in every human endeavor, there are people who grumble that "baseball is not the same with the new baseballs", or "colorizing an old movie is sacrilege" - we could all go on and on.
So - if an ONLY if you are willing to play vinyl as it was meant to be done - and not on a Crosley - then perhaps in time you can hear the better sound quality - IF IF IF that recording was also made to certain specs. If you cannot tell Thunderbird from a fine single malt Scotch - then save you money, and enjoy what you want.
