Is the sound of vinyl better than CD

This is a popular question asked in old school groups.  Vinyl junkies love vinyl.  New school loves usb and digital.  I must admit I love both.  And there is use for both.

But the answer lies in the difference between the recordings. A vinyl record is  an analog recording, and  CDs are digital recordings. 

A vinyl record has a groove carved into it that mirrors the original sound's waveform. This means that no information is lost. The output of a record player is analog.

Vinyl recordings can be much more accurate, and that can be heard in the richness of the sound. But  dust or damage to the record can be heard.

 Digital recordings don't degrade over time or welt or warp,   They can last forever.
