I would think it's easier to get a ****ed sound out of good gear than vice versa, if we're talking about lo-fi'ness as a virtue. There's always bit rate and sample rate reduction, truncating word length w/o dithering, so on and so forth, that you can do with a well recorded sound. If old converters get stupid cheap, which is entirely possible in the world of used digital gear, it might be easier to just buy them and use them instead of tweaking a pristine sound. But that just seems an odd way to go to me. Unless the old gears serve another purpose, it's just a sort of excess.

Is there still a market for the Sony PCM-F1?
