Vinyl and hi-res (PCM, SACD, downloads) supposedly will be available. First time for official hi-res digital releases of Hendrix.

 

Stones mono LPs being produced from digital master transcribed from original master tapes. Both 192 and DSD digital masters were produced. Not clear yet which is the source for the LP's

 

Let's hope DSD digital masters are released.

This article seems to indicate DSD will be released. It also says that DSD was the source for the LPs.

If so - this only confirms that even analogue isn't analogue anymore as it is usually sourced from digital material ;)

Thus analogue vs digital discussion doesn't make much sense anymore :) Correct me if I'm wrong.

AAA LPs are still made by certain labels and artists, but they're rare. I think it is unfortunate.

 

To your second point, the fact that most LP sources are digital does muddy the waters re: the debate about which source is best, but there's still room for discussion re: format. Some people would argue that a 24/192 sourced LP can sound better to their ears and on their system than simply playing back the file.

 

For instance, the new Paul Simon (Stranger to Stranger) sounds better to me on vinyl than my 24/96 file even though it was recorded digitally. On other records, however, it's often the other way around. A lot depends on mastering, cutting, plating, pressing, etc. Lots of variables. So I do think there's room for some debate, however warn out it sometimes seems.

Makes sense. When the Rolling Stones Remastered SACDs came out in 2003, the LPs at that time were also made from the DSD tapes.
