[...]the study suggests young ears at least prefer the tinnier and flatter sound of some digital music over CDs and vinyl.

They prefer digital over CDs? Whaaat? The journalist obviously confuses the analog vs. digital issue with the compressed digital vs. uncompressed digital issue. He has no idea what he's talking about.

and no mention of lossless formats that can be played on iPods?

Given the quality of Mainstream music today, I don't think it really matters, but I'll rip you in half if you try to make me listen to Dark Side of the Moon in anything other than Apple Lossless.
