No problem ! The cost of settling for digital reproduction is only clearly recognized in face of purely acoustic sound from an acoustic ensemble. Since these days, most "music" is sourced by electronic bands, it's more challenging to draw meaningful comparisons. Genuine audiophilia is a serious complication that interferes with the enjoyment of most reproduced music (to be spared is surely a good thing )! A vinyl scratch is always annoying, but damage to the reproduced sound is far more. My experience is that most vinyl owners had no concept as to how to care for records, and the especially cheap styli were hardly kind. Further, many labels counted more on label recognition than actual recording quality, hardly helpful. Digital offers unquestionable advantages over analog, unfortunately, it tends to be short on aural integrity !
