44.1 was a compromise to get enough minutes on a CD, later when consumer
DAT was introduced it wasn't needed to take care about the length, so
they came with 48 KHz.
Vinyl is another issue. I prefer vinyl, because records are similar to
living beings. They get old, they get scratches, but there's no data
loss, the mechanical principle allow it to play them with a needle on
paper, there isn't the need to have a device with special encoding. The
cover art is much nicer.
