|A digitally recorded album pressed on vinyl is basically a CD transfered to LP. It will sound like the CD. |
I wonder how many people play those limited edition vinyl albums. I think most copies stay in their shrinkwrap.
Sorry to disagree. The master tapes, that are being transferred to high resolution audio normally are mastered at 24bit. CDs can only manage 16bit resolution. LPs can play at 192 kHz. CDs only can add to 44.1 kHz. So CDs are far minerior in resolution.
In result, LPs are not transferred from CDs, but from high-resolution master tapes, which clearly surpass the quality of CDs.
High resolution audio files can reproduce that to the same extent.

Analogue audio doesn't have a sample rate, so that's just wrong.
Vinyl records have all kinds of other issues about what their frequency response it (in particular you can't put very low loud bass on a vinyl record because it'll make the needle bounce out of the groove), wide stereo fields don't do well, and the sound quality at the end of one side of the disc is worse than at the beginning.
Well-made vinyl is lovely, and it encourages people to listen to music instead of having it on in background, and it encourages people to play albums all the way through, but it isn't at all the best or most consistent way of listening available to people on a home stereo.
(I should say, I work with analogue tape, vinyl, and digital audio most days for work - I'm not just pulling this from reading hi-fi forums).
