What I think is really funny is that when audio junkies talk about how vinyl has "warmth" or "presence," what they're actually talking about is basically controlled distortion, meaning that vinyl is actually less accurate when it comes to reproducing sound. In addition, with its sampling rate of 44.1 khz, CD audio can reproduce sounds up to 22 khz, which is right around the top end of the range of human hearing. So whatever data gets lopped off doesn't really matter that much.
