Tonky, a little research will show that LPs have less dynamic range, more distortion, worse frequency response than CDs. They even have a few problems (wow, flutter, rumble) that don't even show up on CDs at all. As I posted above, technically (as in 'from a technical perspective") LPs suck more than CDs.
I do not dispute that people like the sound, and that is just fine.
