There's no rule, of course. It all depends on how good equipment you have (RIAA/Phono) and there are vinyls that sound less than good. Overall though, I much prefer the LP sound...partly due to nostalgia, perhaps.

I've heard vinyl played that no CD (or digital) has ever come close to but for me the convenience with digital is the most important ingredient and vinyls is more of a complement.

You can get turntables, amplifiers, RIAA, to sound very close to CD....if you want. For me, I went the other way - I wanted it to sound different. Analog, warm and smooth but with enough details and dynamics.
