Extremely well said!
MP3 isn't too bad at lower compression ratio / higher bit rates, particularly in the bygone days of small FLASH devices. Unfortunately low bit rates were all too often used.
I've had arguments with ignoramuses who claim to be audiophiles and purport there's no way digital can be better than analogue purely because digitisation involves losing information. They then go on to claim therefore that vinyl must be better than CD. Even as an engineer, trying to explain Nyquist etc. to them there's really no point, it feels like trying to preach Christianity to a Bhudist.
