    Re: Why vinyl sounds better

    Personal experience for me indicates that I grew up with only vinyl + 8-track/cassette tape until my mid 20s. My personal taste for audio was formed during that time, and vinyl still relaxes me, and causes a smile.

    That being said, later in life my audio restart began with headphones. I came to really value the other end of the spectrum - correctly amplified digital music through ultra detailed Custom IEMs.

    Currently I enjoy both, depends on the mood. I use digital for either headphones or speakers. Vinyl usually only on speakers. Using vinyl makes you sit, and participate in music listening. Digital allows other activities, particularly as Roon will keep choosing new tracks after the album is done.

    Nothing new here.
    More of the same litany.
    I don´t buy these attempts to find the logical explanation that explains everything.
    The question has nothing to do with neuroscience here, psychoacoustic there.
    I read in another fórum about one blind test with some cables and two systems. In one system no one could notice any difference. When they turn to the other system the diferences became clear for all, despite the preference for one or the other brand of cables.
    Different systems present the music differently, and with noticeable differences in relation to the formats. So when someone says that the vinyl sound is better in their system, they are not suffering from any acoustic / mental illusion. It is probably better. The reverse and for the same reasons is also true.

    Joeinid, of course it is nothing against you!

    Of course, and in the ears and soul of the listener's music taste.
