What are the different constraints for mastering audio content for either Vinyl or CD?

By the way, I'd like to know if there're any papers or documents, with a comparison between different digital format (mp3, wav, ...) vs vinyl.

Thank you.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi! This is such a beautiful question but unfortunately, too opinion based, very broad, and slightly off topic as it's a specific application rather than the theory itself. Yet there are quite a number of people who would like to place their respective answers, but the moderators may close it unless it's made moe conformant with the guidelines... $\endgroup$ – Fat32 Jul 31 '18 at 23:52
  • $\begingroup$ @Fat32 thank you for your comment. I understand, too opinion based, sensitive matter :) . But my am is actually to avoid opinions I want facts, technical explanation, e.g., which format has a better frequency response and a comparison to vinyl. $\endgroup$ – user35663 Jul 31 '18 at 23:59
  • $\begingroup$ Ok then I will put some facts (not as factual as pure numbers though!)... :-)) $\endgroup$ – Fat32 Aug 1 '18 at 0:01

    $\begingroup$ Dirac, please search this site for digital audio effects and DSP books on audio. Then isolate your topic of question. I'm sure you will find a lot of answers... Good luck. $\endgroup$ – Fat32 Aug 1 '18 at 0:48

    $\begingroup$ The "fight" is not a technical one but a subjective one because it largely relies on psychoacoustic claims that tend to depend very much on listeners who are not convinced by objective metrics. There is no comparison between MP3 and vinyl. So, while this is an incredibly interesting question, it needs some structure so that it does not descend into a flame war. For papers, you might want to see this $\endgroup$ – A_A Aug 1 '18 at 8:14
