It's a razor blade cut! That's it, that's definatly it. It has to be that, so there's no changing my mind what-so-ever. Nope, none.

Vinyl has a wider frequency range than CD.
CD's are recorded 16bit 44.1khz. Which gives a highest frequency of 22.5khz. This is just on the edge of the highest frequencies humans (well young humans) can hear. However the reality is higher frequencies are used by the ears to detect location in 3D space.

Also Digital audio is lots of snapshots of the audio waveform. 16 bits is not enough to capture every nuance correctly so the missing bits cause steps in the audio.

MP3's have up to 90% of the data stripped out of the audio - mostly this is fine detail and a lot in the middle ground.

In order of quality
Worst MP3
Then CD
Then Vinyl
Then 24bit Wav
Then 2" reel to reel tape at 30 inches per second. (ask your dad!)

I think when people say vinyl sounds better they're comparing it to mp3's, not CD's.

Also, mp3's are crappy quality and I can't stand when someone spends a lot of money on sound equipment and then plays mp3's on it.

Sorry Saka.
Vinyl scratches worse than CDs.
It is the more delicate of the two. I can leave my CDs in the car. I cannot leave a Vinyl record in the car.

This may be an extreme example, but this guy suggests *walking softly when near the playing turntable*.

CDs will always sound cleaner. The effect achieved on LPs to some degree is the equivalent to "blur" on a TV screen. Making it too sharp often makes it seem strange, even though it is the higher quality (crisper/sharper) image.

If you want to argue you like them better, good for you, but don't go throwing around words like "definitely". It definitely isn't that clear cut.
