I've yet to hear this magical vinyl set-up that plays wide dynamic range classical music without audible flaws during the quiet passages.
So the point I'm getting at is this: I think it is the kind of mastering as they do for vinyl what the people really like, the people who prefer vinyl over cd, of course.
Maybe it is that of the modern vinyl pressing have a greater dynamic range than their cd counterparts.
Maybe it is the differences in the depth of the bass or some such.
Maybe it is related to something else.
But I don't think it is related to the physical medium itself and that if they are not visually exposed to the medium they'd still prefer the vinyl-style mastering over the mastering intended for cd reproduction.
And I still stand by my idea that putting on a vinyl is more of an effort and that has a positive influence on the experience of music.
I'm totally lost.

They made the mistake of releasing test records on "modern vinyl pressings" so that technical types can measure its dynamic range. It's about 30 dB shy of what its CD counterparts can do.
