>>Vinyl appeals to people who like the analog distortion that creates the pleasing sound which I'm rather indifferent to
Mildly disagree. There's some truth to that, but vinyl appeals to people far more because it provides them with a physical object that represents their music. Most people don't know about the technical stuff. I know several people who buy vinyl of albums they like even though they don't own a record player and can't listen to it. the physicality and size of vinyl is what's made it stick around.
