Sure but that is not an equal competition. CD has the advantage; it is
the better format. And when done right should sound better no matter
what cart one uses. 
I'm just amazed how good that cart plays. It is very close to CD

Playing vinyl once and a while is more than just the SQ alone. Mnyb
described it correctly: it's also about the ritual. 
The Benz cart adds a dimension to the experience since it makes my
records sound a whole lot better that the Sure does. (oeps, now I start
to sound like an audiophile...)
