Vinyl lover here. I like an honest reproduction of an analog master, but
that doesn't mean I pass on reissues that go through a digital stage. It
also doesn't mean that I don't buy records that were recorded digitally,
and then released on vinyl.
I might be a weird vinyl consumer because I think that digital is more
accurate than vinyl. I buy vinyl records because I will be able to play
them in 30 years, while my digital files will probably be lost in the next
10 years. I also admit that I like having a physical artifact to go with
the music I like, and at that, vinyl is so much better than CDs.
