A friend of mine who is a sound engineer was saying that the reason vinyl is a richer sound is that with vinyl, it records all the sound frequencies, even the ones the human ear can not hear. But with CD's only the frequencies humans can hear are recorded. 

Not sure how true this is as im not a rocket scientist.

It depends.

Back in the day, I loved the deep rich sound of a vinyl record played through a tube amp.  Warm and fuzzies.  Until, of course, your kid brother scratches the crap out of it.

CDs, especially those from the first decade or two of cd-dom, tend to sound tinny.  But a lot of remastered CDs sound better to me than original vinyl. 

There's no replacement for large album art, and spending hours analyzing a cover.  Harder to do when it's less than 1/4 the size.

I also am happy a lot of studios and bands are finally putting out albums in paper packaging.  It's better than plastic for the environment, and the CDs take up half the space on my shelf!

Well,vinyl is much better but CD's are much more simple to use :-)

I've got all my original vinyls, and everything on CD as well cause you can't play vinyl in the car! 

Peace, Glen.

I like both personally. Vinyl is still around and is coming back in vogue. I recently picked up British Steel on vinyl on ebay in great condition. CD's are more convenient, you can take them with you in the car and so on. I am trying to build up my vinyl collection again.

For the collector : Vinyl LP
Nothing compare to the analog sound, besides digital is sampled analog.

Both! OK, CD's are better in handling than Vinyls.
But the older Albums sounded better on Vinyls.

Nothing beats the vinyl sound, and nothing beats the CD convenience. I like to collect vinyl myself. I have Pink Floyds Darkside of the Moon on the original release vinyl set that belonged to my dad. I also have Slayer's Live Undead picture disc on vinyl (and CD).

My answer is Vinyl of course. I got Project-Audio turntable in 2005 and since then i am also buying vinyls for my archive.Analog sound is much more real than the digital sound...

I like them both. I have alot of vinyl for I used to DJ back in the 80's. I still have all of my DJ equipment, you just can't beat a Tech. 1200 turntable and I have 2. With the technologies out now, you can get a Tascam CD recorder with anolog inputs and the "magic" record button. Plug that into the output of the mixer or better yet - the "tape out" of your receiver and you can "tape" anything you want from the receiver. I combine the 2 and can make real time mixes on cd + insert the track incriments anywhere I like. I think they both have their advantages. 

Also, both cd and vinyl can scratch easily so that's a draw. The only medium I have found that is durable is a sound card that you would put into a digital recorder. But then again, you cannot put track incriments into this while recording so you have to play it back through the mixer in real time and burn your disc that way. This does work and the Samson H4 is an excellent digital recorder capable of either 4-track, wave, or MP3 recordings. I have experimented with one of these and bought one the very next day. Great for live recordings. (hint, hint!)

Vinyl gets the get the sound- even if it is scratchy.....the 'buzz' of a decent size cover... the feel of the thing - like its something 'real' not a twatty little 'dick ring' ...cds just suck..... mp3s have their uses

I'd wish "Angel of Retribution" could be released on vinyl, the most cozy format...

Vynil, even when I come from the CD/MP3/DVD era I prefere Vynil because of the sound,the feeling it transmit to me, also because it looks kinda cool and because of the covers of the albums, some of them looks like pictures to be framed and put on the wall of your room or any room of the house,are more personal.
