Beside the fact that vinyl is stuck in the past and good SACD DSD are still better sound than vinyl.

One of the major issue to a good vinyl turntable with arm and so on is that it cost north of 10K. No thanks it is a bit too pricey for my blood. I would rather get a new SACD player like the new Sony SCD-XA5400ES for $1500 and enjoy multichannel audio.
