I have an opinion about why vinyl is sometimes preferred that I rarely see mentioned in these articles. I haven’t made any measurements so I could be wrong, but here is what I think.
I beleive that much of the difference is in how it was mixed, and how much dynamic range compression is used. It is strange that a CD quality digital recording has the capacity for much more dynamic rangethan an LP, but it is rarely used. If you are listening to any vintage vinyl, there was some compression just to get it to fit within the constraints of the media, but usually that was about it. But the CD era was also the start of the loudness wars, and in the digital download era it is even worse. Almost any popular music made in this century is really compressed and loud. But when it is mixed for an LP, I think that the engineer knows that it won’t just be played over an iPhone speaker and cuts down the compression. Then to someone who cares about sound quality, it sounds better.
But in the end, I agree with what has already been said. No matter what it is, enjoy the music.
