    Now if we talk recordings and records cut completely pre digital (and even pre-solid state) then yes, I agree they have something a 'perfect' digital recording does not have. But we are well into the realms of subjectivism and in operational terms, multiple possibilities of cause there. Maybe that is the proof of the analogue purity theory. I'm guessing not, I may be wrong.

    But if you want to be truly purist analogue it is reel to reel you want, not vinyl

    I wonder how much vinyl played is modern digital sourced. For myself not much of it is. Might as well buy the CD and rip it. Some of my issues with modern vinyl though is much to do with modern recording techniques.

    A perspective?

    Turn up at a mates gaffe slightly worse for wear after a night out and He has a good hifi system.
    A GOOD hifi system?
    In our terms...I say enjoy!

    * What if a random stranger has a meticulously preserved (shitty format) cassette collection...and a mint condition Nakamichi Dragon?
    * Another random stranger might have a 301?...another a Gyro?

    Only thing that matters (I fink) is wot hits our ears “in the context we hear it”?
    Absolute quality will always triumph, always, but we all remember that...special...night where the Music was magic.

    Hifi..who cares!!
