This is closer to the opposite of the truth (counterintuitive as it

I like my records. I have a pretty good record player that's about the
same age as I am, and I use it a lot. I like the physical objects, and
there are recordings I have on both LP and CD and prefer to listen to
from LP, either because the mastering is different or because I happen
to like the vinyl sound in that music.
But I can't tell the difference between the original vinyl and a
recording of it, using a decent soundcard, burned back onto a CD
again. I've tested it well enough to convince myself. All those
attractive distortions are faithfully preserved.
