Does Anyone Think CD is Better Than Vinyl/Analog?

I am curious to know if anyone thinks the CD format (and I suppose that could include digital altogether) sounds better than vinyl and other analog formats. Who here has gone really far down both paths and can make a valid comparison? So far, I have only gone very far down the CD path and I just keep getting blown away by what the medium is capable of! I haven’t hit a wall yet. It is extremely dependent on proper setup, synergy and source material. Once you start getting those things right, the equipment gets out of the way and it can sound more fantastic than you can imagine! It’s led me to start developing a philosophy that goes something like this: Digital IS “perfect sound forever”; it’s what we do to the signal between the surface of the CD and the speaker cone that compromises it.” 
So I suppose what I’m asking for is stories from people who have explored both mediums in depth and came to the conclusion that CD has the most potential (or vice versa - that’s helpful too). And I don’t simply mean you’ve spent a lot of money on a CD player. I mean you’ve tinkered and tweaked and done actual “research in the lab,” and came back with a deep understanding of the medium and can share those experiences with others.

In my experience, the three most important things to get right are to find a good CD player (and good rarely means most expensive in my experience) and then give it clean power. In my case, I have modified my CD player to run off battery power with DC-DC regulators. The last thing that must be done right is the preamp. It’s the difference between “sounds pretty good” and “sounds dynamic and realistic.”
Whatever floats yer boat.  Personally, I prefer CD and SACD.  I hate noise, so that's probably the main reason.  That said, sure, LP's can sound wonderful.  But I think they have zero advantage, sound-wise, over CD.  It's all in the recording and mastering, IMHO.  I have great and wretched sounding recordings in all formats.  I will continue buying silver discs as long as I can.

Thanks for sharing the article. But I am afraid it won’t make any difference to vinyl aficionado’s. They are just living in ‘denial’. 

I enjoy extracting the ‘best’ each format (CD, Vinyl and Streaming) has to offer rather than getting into endless debate of which format is superior 😊
Before anyone states that they absolutely know that CD is better, listen some the old Sheffield Direct to Disc LP's with a really good cartridge and pre-amp.  The Rosie O'Grady's Good Time Jazz Band D to D is also excellent. Before anyone states that LP's are better, listen to Santana's Supernatural, Body Count, or many other CD's.  As fat as streaming, I am still waiting to hear anything that sounds as good as my TT or CD player, but not eve better systems than mine have moved me yet with a streaming signal.

Same old stuff - no one wins this.
With due respect to the experienced listeners/visitors on this forum, I feel we should also consider the fact that people have "grown up" accustomed to a "format". And this is what I think dictates their preference of analog or digital. I am guessing, a person becomes so used to a "format" that anything different will probably be looked down upon.
If people have open minds (or ears) and can listen without bias then any medium sounds great. I did listen to vinyl during few demos and it did sound nice. The reason for me not to go to vinyl are: cost (maintenance, phono preamp, buying same music all over again) , time (alignment, cleaning, storage) and convenience. But as many have pointed out, it is not just the format. It is the "mastering process" that dictates the sound quality. If you wish to avoid the loudness war, then look up the "" site to make sure you get the CDs that do not have dynamic compression. I have converted all my CDs/SACDs to FLAC/DSF format. Going forward, if I have to purchase music, I will look in the following order: 1. SACD, 2. Hi-rez downloads and 3. CDs. Streaming is a great option.
