That's only partly true and early CD's when it was first invented and people didn't take it seriously could objectively tell the difference between cd and vinyl due to poor conversion of analog to digital.
however nowadays with advantage in technology such as dither and anti-aliasing filters the re really is no audible difference in quality.
Also understand that when putting a needle on a vinyl, you are producing distortion and the total distortion has been proven to be higher in vinyl then on CD.
I don't think there has been any blinded trials where people could tell the difference between vinyl and cd.
With something like mp3 vs flac, or 24 bit vs 16 bit there have been demonstrated cases of people being able to pick out the better quality recording (although those people are in the minority) but from my knowledge, I haven't seen one with vinyl vs Cd yet (of course without the crackles and pops on the vinyl).
This contrast to the real audible crackles and pops from vinyl due to long term use and the greater dynamic ranges of CD. Really if anyone listen to classical music, it's pretty much a must to listen to it on CD.
