Ultimately, LP/analog vs. CD/digital is a religious argument: It cannot be
proved nor disproved. Much like how modern speed is better/worse than oldie
thought processes. (See? Back OT :-) Just heed this advice: Don't agree
to participate in actual A/B double-blind listening tests -- you will become
frustrated and upset.
CDs have the better frequency range; LPs have the better dynamic range.
DVD-Audio blows the doors off of everything, yet will take a very long time
to take off, as CDs and DVDs are firmly entrenched in popular culture and
spending budgets. SACD is a mixed bag; it's lossy, but not much, and the
current SACD standard is 5.1 audio, 48KHz, 24-bit.
SACD is a hack, if you ask me ;-)
