audiophileThis is my actual point...when you convert analog to digital...first step is to pass the analog signal through a high pass and low pass filter...this removes the frequencies that the human ear can not hear and its supposidly a waste to convert them to digital....on an old fashioned analog record from the 70s and early 80s..these signals were retransmitted...to an audio file with a high end stereo in the 70s they can feel these frequencies in the form of heat...to anyone raised on digital recordings..cds seem much clearer...and they are..but to someone used to records ..something is missing....thats the only point I wanted to make... but for people who think music isn't compressed on a CD..i just give my sympathies to

Filtering out inaudible frequencies is not compression in the same way as MP3. It is also not the same as dynamic range compression which is yet another thing.
I will agree that a given recording from a vinyl record can sound much warmer and natural than a CD, but almost no one records music primarily for vinyl any more, so any music recorded after the mid to late 90s is likely to have been recorded digitally from the beginning, overproduced, and quantized to within a nanometer of its life anyway and therefore be something sterile and "perfect," unlike an actual musical performance. Putting anything that falls into that category onto vinyl seems pretty pointless. Even some of the re-released older albums on vinyl you can buy today are not from the original masters, but the digital versions they used to create the CDs, etc.
