Yes, I feel dirty too when I know that at some point one of my records was converted to digital so that old studio recordings on tapes that have degraded over the years can end up sounding better.

I console myself by knowing I'm not a sad twat that would rather listen to something full of hiss, dropouts and other crap because I imagine that having such a rare, discerning appreciation for "pure" recordings somehow makes me special.

So of course, even if this new process makes vinyl sound better, I'll want no part of it.

Actually, I'll still mostly just listen to CD, FLAC and Dolby/DTS Blu-Ray surround, then castigate myself in the corner afterwards for my apostacy.
