Just because you think Nyquist is insufficient doesn't mean I have to come up with a new theory to explain your perception.
Anyone who thinks *Nyquist* -- the theorem -- is insufficient, that it 'misses something' about the signal, is clueless. But those who think the *Redbook Nyquist limit* -- 44.1 kHz -- is insufficient for reproducing the audible band, are making a slightly more sophisticated argument (though they're often clueless too, as with that hillbilly Johnny B in the Lavry thread).
Vinyl=analog bothers me, too. What does "analog" sound like, exactly? And whenever I hear people start waxing rhapsodic about how "silken" cymbols sound on their preferred medium, I have to wonder whether they've actually ever heard someone thwack a cymbol.
Analog is *tape* first and foremost -- that's where 99.9% of all that beloved old vinyl was mastered from.
