My analog heart fluttered after reading this thread's title! After all, for many years have I predicted the eventual resurrection of vinyl albums to their natural ascendency upon the mountaintop of audio. I had been waiting for this day.
But then I read the OP's first sentence and witnessed the dreaded word digital. Alas, we record lovers will continue to live secretly and quietly in the wilderness, biding our time, until we once again rise up and smite those that would digitally sample and compress our music. Stay patient, you brave two-channel warriors. Our time is coming.
