Saying that "vinyl records are superior to digital files" (which is what I wrote) is misinformation. Digital is objectively superior in any way we can measure. No if and but on that subject.
And that is a totally different conversation, yes, any one can subjectively prefer what ever they want for what ever reason. No argument from me. What sound better to you does not make it better or worth to what I prefer. Their is a myriad of reason why we like something, but performance is measured objectively and cannot be argued in the case of vinyl vs digital.
I have to say that there is no clear definition of what is considered superior or inferior. When you say its objectively superior, that's your opinion.
You need to understand the definition of what is better or superior. In order for something to be better, it must meet certain criteria/rules/definitions/parameters. These must be deifnite by a authoritative body. Then, this is agreed upon by major players in the industry which becomes a standard. Everyone in the industry then follows this standard and there will be no arguments.
Objective measurements are ultimately just numbers. Even when you have a number, you need to interpret this number. There must be an agreed upon definition (standard) of how to interpret these numbers.
I am not disagreeing with you here. I have been saying for a long long time that audio industry lacks such standards and definitions. This is why there have been so much arguments, misinformation around.
