Hoping is troll, but...
Harmonics above the hearing range are irrelevant to hearing oddly enough.
> I believe it was Shannon's law which basically stated that the sampling
Thy Shannon-Nyquist-[etc] sampling theorem states the sampling rate
for a PCM channel must be epsilon greater than twice the channel
bandwidth. It generalizes nicely to other digital forms like PDM, etc.

It's a fundamental property of mathematics and information theory, like 1+1=2.
> I also understand that vinyl is now increasingly (very slowly though)
Vinyl died in the mainstream for good reasons, just like open reel
tape did. It's more expensive, inferior, easier to damage, and wears
Nothing about its performance is better. I grant it's pretty to look
at, fun to handle, and relatively straightforward technology. That
has nothing to do with how it sounds or performs.

No, you don't.
No, it isn't.
