Ah but vinyl adds that slight subliminal frictional hiss of the stylus and that slight subliminal hum from the motor and it all goes to give it a warm, "natural" sound.
It is worth realising that no system gives natural sound - they give sounds that a listener can and will perceive, or assume, to be natural, but really it's just one that wows them. I have a friend who is always ranting on about this - he used to work in the vicinity of Centre Point
and came to spend lunchtimes regularly going in one of the top, top, top-end hifi shops in the area and listening to different combinations of gear with the approval of the owner. There's this belief that a good hifi will sound like a string quartet is actually in your room, but, possibly a bit like at the opticians, where the tests are all subjective, when you ask people to choose gear they think makes it sound like the string quartet is in your room, they choose something that gives a totally different sound (quoting the owner of the shop) - experts can actually choose gear that DOES sound like a string quartet is in your room, but it sounds crap to a listener. What people buy when they spend £100,000 on hifi is a mind-blowing aural experience without being natural in any way, irregardless [/joke] of whether it's analogue or digital.
Erm, what's my conclusion? I've forgotten, but I hate vinyl, but whatever rocks your boat. If your aural experience from vinyl is mind-blowing and not ruined by clicks and pops and scratches, then go for it, but realise what you are going for. If you're convinced, that's all that matters.
It's just that with vinyl there's a temptation for OCD sufferers to be tweaking all the time looking for imaginary perfection which they will never get.
