I think I understand what you're saying: if there's enough people with
good hardware and knowledge of how to do a2d correctly, then it's
possible to get around all copy protection schemes.

The problems I see are:

1) this requires p2p networks to work, which have dubious legal status,
depending on your country, whereas it's not illegal to rip CD's at home
(barring DMCA nonsense)
2) it takes a lot longer to rip a2d than d2d
3) you can't pick files from networks just based on bit-rate; you either
need to go by the ripper's reputation, or by listening to them yourself,
to check that the person did it correctly.

Basically, at this point, in my opinion, the RIAA doesn't have much to
worry about w.r.t. the "analog hole".

Anyway, for me it's a moot point ... I just buy vinyl!

Cheers,
Chris
