Ron Swanson is a man who cherish' the end product of hard work, craftsmanship and ingenuity. He believes that the best things take time to be properly made. He wouldn't downgrade to MP3 for those reasons. I just assumed, with PaR being so popular, more people would understand why I made that comment.
Wish I knew how to reply to more then on comment right now

Generally analog has a more natural sound but is typically more distorted due to being able to be physically distorted by it's environment where as it's pretty hard to fuck up something like a file. It's also common for people to listen to really low quality music, not like bad music but actual low bitrate i think it's a bitrate idk im kinda high and tired like low quality sound where way higher is available.

Additionally, since most songs nowadays are mastered digitally, most new vinyl is just a bad copy of the digital file anyway, so you don't gain anything but distortion by listening to the vinyl.

MP3 will never achieve quality of lossless compression because of time and frequency masking effects used in MP3, but in normal conditions (normal price-range headphones without FLAC, ALAC, ATRAC or SLS MP4, pre-amp, amp and other stuff) you're right. Most people won't notice the difference. The biggest is in staging the song as whole...MP3 has (in my opinion) more flat sound...like if the band was standing exactly in one place. Lossless format has more space-y feeling to me.
Analog audio will technically never get beaten. Analog signal is distorted only by recording circuitry etc. Digital has this distortion + Modulation errors. Although the analog recording gets worn off from over-playing the casette, vinyl etc...

But the thing with records vs mp3 is practicality. Ya nothing weird about listening to records at home, but when you want to go out and still listen to music, dragging the entire record player is impractical, the outside isn't the best place for the player (especially where my winters are -30c), and it's going to inconvenience others.
No one is going to say records aren't quality, but hipsters are going to act like you need one to listen to music even though Mp3 players are far easier in public.

I have several micro sd cards I can change, and usually only keep 500 songs on my phone at once, and not all of them are flac. I know what you mean, though. There's a lot of different solutions. For me flac + qc15 is the best, but for others the commitment is just stupid and pointless.

mp3 quality varies a lot, though. I've heard mp3 files I'm comfortable with having on m phone, and some that sound like you use a phone speaker from 10 years ago.
For getting files, I'm really lucky. My father has a huge collection of the few bands he listen to, so I have access to everything by Pink Floyd for instance. I also got access to hundreds of CDs and LPs from some family friends. Still have to get a lot myself, though.
There's something magical about lossless quality music.

Never heard of flac files, guess I'm a little stupid but what are they compared to mp3? And do you know what phones can use them? I have an iPhone, but I'm changing to something else in October (plan will be up) because iTunes went full Nazi on my music, even deleted songs I uploaded from a CD.

FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec and is pretty self explanatory. Sound quality is generally better than that you find on YouTube, if you have good source files. I know my old Sansa mp3 player supports flac, as well as LG G3 and Tesla Model S. There are several apps on Android that support flac if needed. Don't know what more supports flac, but here's a list: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_hardware_and_software_that_supports_FLAC
After using common music files, like mp3, for a while. Listening to flac files on decent headphones is eargasmic.

But you don't sound like you're "caring", you sound like you're comparing two music types that are made for different pros and cons. Ya records are better quality, but you really expect someone to carry a player around everywhere?
Going from records to mp3 is more like going from a great computer rig to a laptop, the downgrade in quality can be made up for mobility.

So let me get this straight: You seriously imply smoking isn't bad? Let's break it down:
- Unhealthy (To a varying degree. Many get cancer, others just fuck up their lungs.)
- Time consuming (Assuming you spend 5 minutes walking outside and smoke, and you're a 20-a-day, it's over an hour and 40 minutes doing nothing.
- Considered negative in social groups
- Restricted, meaning you will have a shit time on a plane etc.
- Gives you yellow teeth and fingers
- Bad breath
- Probably a shit ton I forgot
- You get to be edgy
Are there still people claiming smoking isn't a bad thing, let alone glorify it? Smoking is worse than being a 300 pound whale health-wise, and probably less expensive.
