As to vinyl, the material, the way the soundwave is saved onto it and the way it's played makes it impossible for vinyl to ever be technically as good as a CD.

The sound a vinyl makes is a different thing, that is a matter of personal preference. Some like the "warmer" sound and the cracks and pops which every vinyl album will make when played back. No matter how good your equipment is. Again, it's just physics.

Ice is correct here - even the width of the grooves in vinyl is an average and a best scenario approximation. That's before even considering the quality of the needle used for playback and how much damage it does every time the record is played.

Digital is cleaner sound which some people interpret as harsh as compared to vinyl. I have a friend who insists that vinyl sounds better. He works at a very high end audio store selling very expensive audio equipment. So a few years ago we had an A / B blind listening test at my house. I have a very high end bi-amped audio system (purchased from the same friend). My friend brought over his precious vinyl and we cued up the CD player and the record at the same spot and ran them through two separate but identical Bryston pre-amps. He guessed wrong about which was playing almost every time. By the end of the evening he finally had to conclude that yes, CDs could sound as good as vinyl.

I was thinking about getting the vinyl version, too, but rather as a collectible item. As of now, I'm going for the USB version USB version first (has this been mentioned here at JT?):

I WANT THAT! Have you found anyplace that's actually selling them at this point? Amazon in the U.S. doesn't have them.

EDIT - oh wait, I just saw the link. Sorry. Wow, that's pricey, but I love the heart and dagger logo . . .

It's very pricey - and in one of the threads here I read that the videos are not even full screen. I decided to pass it by as much as it appeals to me as a gadget.

Amazon US have had it as a coming soon item for ages. I was going to wait as I had hoped it might be cheaper there.

After scouring the net I ended up finding it being the cheapest right here in Australia (unusual).

Its from JB Hifi its only $67 aussie dollars which is about the same in US dollars. Mine should be arriving next couple of days.

When I added up the averages, the total if you buy the GH Ultimate and the Video DVD, it would run you about $35 with tax in the US. So you're only paying about $15 extra for everything on a USB, which isn't too outrageous. Certainly it is much smaller than lugging around a CD and a DVD, and some cars have USB ports nowadays, I believe.
