well it's still made of vinyl - a needle still drags through the grooves, shedding plastic, handling causes scratches, etc I am sure there will still be plenty of noise for the "mystique"

but will increased dynamic range and/or frequency range "ruin" it for the mystique lovers?

I wonder if the very idea of passing through a digital stage won't "ruin" it, mystique-wise? Irrespective of 'sound' I mean. I am sure there are a lot of people, some of them right here at Gearslutz, who have already decided they are not going to like it.
