Just a quicky. I got the original CBS Recording on LP of Brubecks Time Out (and Further out) as well as the CD CBS Maserpieces one re-mastered from the original Analog Tapes (rather than the numerous re-issues after copyrights expired, which allowed anyone to make copies from whatever sources - beware if you're buying re-issues, whether on lp or cd. Some are better than others)
Anyway, played on the Thorens through my lovely Sony receivers built in phono stage and both from a Denon CD player direct and through the DACS of the Sony ... sorry, no comparison.
LP wins handsdown imho. Sure, the odd click/popp (it is a 50 year old recording/lp) but the dynamics, ebb and flow just are better. It sounds alive and more real.
Its not always as simple and straight as this but its why I am glad I've started collecting records recently.
