Vinyl pools are generally "pretty good"! Tens of thousands of people have vinyl-lined pools (both above and below ground) and enjoy them completely. There are pros and cons of both vinyl and gunnite lined pools. I would suggest that you talk to several pool builders and pool owners of each kind to get an idea of the relative merits of both.
I have a vinyl pool and wouldn't have any other. The bottom is so soft on your feet. The kids can play in the pool for hours and hours and have no problem with their feet. It is slightly less expensive to build and to replace the liner (maybe about 10 years) is not nearly as expensive as replastering/repairing gunnite. The only reason I see that people I know get gunnite is there seems to be more prestige to it than vinyl. One woman said to me once about one of her neighbors that had gunnite, "Oh she has a real pool". Don't listen to her, vinyl is great, my liner is beautiful and it's less expensive.
Live in Texas and have had inground vinyl pool for 19 years - have replaced liner twice - cost about $ 1500 8 years ago to replace. Now need some work done on coping (pulling loose)and fiberglass steps need refurbishing. If I can find someone to do repairs at reasonable cost will keep pool. Received quote of $30 + a few days ago to replace with gunite pool. Have enjoyed our vinyl pool. We winterize and shut it down in Sept and open back up May or June and therefore do not have the cost of running the pump during that time. The water is crystal clear when we remove the cover to reopen.
My brother has owned a vinyl pool for 20 years and never had any problem with it. It is just as beautiful as any "supposedly real" pool. I've only had my liner for 4 years and it's doing quite well.
All depends on what you are looking for and how much you have to spend. Concrete pools are usually considered the "high-end" pool but installation takes a long time and maintenance and repair are costly. Steel pools, or I'm assuming you're referring the vinyl liner pools, are a good, cost efficient option. Though, if you want to extend the life span of your pool, check out the other building materials used for vinyl liner pools.. such as Fiber Reinforced Composite Materials.
Some of this is opinion (thus subjective) and some depends on some variables like location and what features you want. In areas that have winter and freezing weather typically vinyl lined pools tend to be more popular as the freezing can cause concrete to crack over a few season and cause costly repairs. There are some options, like vanishing edges, that are easier (and cheaper) to do with a concrete pool that make that a better option for some.
Well, if a vinyl record is played using a good turntable and cartridge, and if the record is in good condition, it is every bit as good as a CD.___________Without quibbling too much over terminology, it is possible to have a recording on vinyl that has been digitally mastered. But you are asking about a comparison between music pressed onto a vinyl disc and music recorded and played back digitally. Many will say that the sound from a good quality vinyl record has a warmer quality than most digital recordings, but it is very likely that those who say it are from the generation that grew up with vinyl records. I think there is some truth to it. It may seem that vinyl is warmer because good vinyl recordings are so goodthat their slight lack of fidelity is mistaken for an intended effect of softness, much like the appeal of some photographs that are very slightly out of focus. However, I would not like to see a return to vinyl. Vinyl records are too prone to scratches, warps and other things that make them less desirable. Keep in mind that people who grew up with vinyl records didn't typically have high quality digital recordings to compare them to. The best vinyl records at the end of the vinyl era seemed to be as good as it could possibly get. Were we in for a surprise!
