It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.


Who said anything about "noises from vinyl playback"? I specifically said pristine vinyl. No snap crackle pop, excellent analog audio.

I'm talking about the SNR. The best analog/vinyl pressings sound gorgeous, with visceral dynamic range and tactile presence and a sense of true natural audio. But vinyl cannot equal the SNR of digital. The digital crowd perceive this as an advantage of digital, because, you know, measured numbers are the whole story. But in reality, it is the key to the naturalness of analog audio. It just sounds more "real" than digital. (The neophytes call it "warmth" but it is not warmth, it is just closer to the real world experience.)

Once again, no universals.
