I disagree that it's this whole "what you're used to thing"..19 years old here, grew up listening to crap lossy, transcoded p2p audio (and radio before that).
Then one day I got a turntable. Blew me away. Much, much better (that is, assuming the stylus and record are clean and free of defects). I know over time vinyls quality degrades but if you take proper care it's much better.
I'll take a worn vinyl with pops over lossy audio ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.
