Nyquist go home!

Today I received (after some annoyance with the duty office) a very nice LP (Neil Young: Broken Arrow). I already knew the CD version, but the LP version has a very nice bonus track. When I put on the LP I was flabbergasted by the drastic audible difference in fidelity that the LP offers compared to the CD. This LP offeres a _lot_ more depth and liveliness than the CD. If anybody ever wants to argue with me again about this, please come here and compare for yourself. I admit, this is not exactly a scientific study, there’s still a possibility that the CD is mastered very badly or that my CD player is shit compared to my turntable. I still find it very surprising, especially since my hifi is everything but high-end audiophile (and my ears aren’t either). I’m curious how this compares with my new amp (Super-T, yay), when it arrives.
