Give me a break.

I've spent quite a few evenings playing albums and digitising them.
Listening to them objectively, even the best-cared-for vinyl doesn't
touch a CD. I wish they did, since post-processing an album to lessen
the most obvious imperfections takes about an hour.

Playing vinyl is akin to eating by candlelight. The point isn't the
quality of the light, it's the setting of a mood.
