Hi Ben,

Thanks for reading. I notice that I did leave out one important detail: The vinyl record you chose for the comparison must be an all analogue production.

Lot's of folks don't realize that most vinyl records manufactured since the mid to late 1980's have been mastered from a digital transfer of the original recording. Yes, even most reissues of classic vintage rock and roll.

Once cd's started do dominate the retail scene, most record companies simply employed the digital transfer of the original recording, used to make the cd, for the new vinyl copies as well.

One example: The recent mono edition of the Beatles vinyl lp's are the first Beatles pressings made directly from analogue tape since approx 1985. There have been no such all analogue reissues of the stereo versions since that time.

So, if you chose a Beatles lp to make your comparison, preferably a stereo copy, do make sure it's from the early 1980's or older (and also try to avoid one of the many north American versions that tend to have a lot of "fake" or "preprocessed for stereo" tracks.

Cheers
