Ive been looking around for a bit but cant seem to find a definitive comparison between CD and Vinyl.
 
for instance:                       CD          Vinyl
Capacity(minutes)     :         80            ....
Recording format      :         Digital     Analogue
 
and so on......
 
 
NO FLAME WARS PLEASE!!!!
 
 
 
Thank you.

There's lots of info on this in the Sound Science section.
 
Basically, CD/digital is vastly superior to vinyl in every way in terms of technical performance.
 
However, many analog recordings/masters are better than digital versions, so some vinyl does sound better than other versions.
