Ha ha, I don't need blind test, when I first bought a portable CD player in the early 90s and hooked up onto the stereo to listen, I dumped the turn table in the garbage can.......For real..........And gave the whole collection of LP to my stepson. Even the little CD player opened up the dynamics. Yes, it's a cheap portable CD player, it's sounded a little grainy, but couldn't help but love the dynamics and the separation of the bass and treble. It just got better when I bought a real CD player.
Anyway, not interested in debating about the blind test, just want to say my piece.
EDIT: I know there is a unmistakable difference in sound between record and CD. Record just have a distinct sound, to me it's like retro from the good old days. I don't listen to old music, so I don't particularly want to remember back the good old days.
