140. Digital actually presents low end more accurately.
But that's where we start to get into trouble. Many artists (in the old days) were present at mastering sessions, and their music was mastered specifically to sound good on vinyl. So when you listen to those tapes transferred to digital they often do sound lacking in low end, and it's probably not what the artist wanted you to hear.

I agree that new CDs are inferior to vinyl played on an audiophile system.
