If you've picked up an arts section lately, you've probably seen a story with one (or both) of the following theses: "Vinyl is making a comeback." "If you want great sound, you buy vinyl."

Sure, analog grooves of a vinyl record hold more information than any digital sample rate. But if an album was recorded digitally—a situation that's becoming more and more common—are you getting more information by buying it on vinyl?
