I wouldn't argue that vinyl sounds different than CD. The question is, what is the cause of those differences. Scientific examination of vinyl revealed significant problems, including phase, FR, bass limitations, etc., with vinyl. If I could make an analogy, Sunfire makes some amps that have both current based and voltage based outputs. They definitely sound different, because the FR is not flat with the current based outputs. That doesn't make it better, just different. Euphonics. It's all about euphonics.
