maybe, but it's more likely the large amount of artifacts well within 
the range of human hearing :-)
e.g. stereo crosstalk; various flavors of harmonic distortion; 
bass resonances caused by the turntable arm; probably other
problems that i don't even know about.

don't get me wrong, I love vinyl, I love the sound of many of my LPs. 
But most if not all turntables & records have very serious 
fidelity "flaws".
