That's the real problem right there. Even the people who should know better, the engineers, have no clue.
The problem that there are many of self-proclaimed "sound engineers". Those aren't actually engineers at all. There are some short careers (2 years or so) with title of "multimedia designer" or "sound recording" etc.
Even if it were real engineers, I wonder what actual percentage of them believe in such stuff.

Now there are people who admit that Vinyl is technologically inferior to CD but still prefer it because it add some pleasant harmonic distortion
I usually listen to the PC server most of the time, but sometimes I feel the need to do the vinyl ritual: clean the LP, put it on, and drop the arm and listen. Plus the artwork on a 12" Lp has so much more impact then the display on the monitor or on a CD jewel case.
So I suppose that makes me irrationally biased against vinyl?
Yes, there is tacky artwork out there, but that applies to CD's as well.
