RE: ?? we both quoted pretty much the same thing

I understand that. But it was my other examples that you claim supported your argument that I was really thinking of here. Niche markets for older technology does not point to a failure of the newer technology to deliver on the promise of improved performance. It's a non sequitur argument. There are too many examples of it not being true.

The continued production of prop planes does not prove a failure of jet planes to deliver superior performance.

The continued production of sail boats does not prove a failure of motorized ocean vessels to deliver superior performance.

The revival of polaroid cameras does not prove a failure of digital photography to deliver superior performance to that of polaroid photography.

The continued interest in equestrian sports is not proof that the automobile has failed to deliver a superior means of transportation.

regardless of any subjective opinions about the relative aesthetic merits of vinyl v. digital media your argument in and of itself fails. The vinyl revival is not proof of a failure in digital technology delivering on performance.
