Yes, that was my impression, too.. For a good vinyl cut you have to have
a different mastering to work around the limitations of the medium..
Actually I worded that second point rather badly. The point was that the
vinyl cutting process (including special/professional mastering) will
introduce many more audible artefacts than the 44.1khz/16bit
downsampling export for a CD. Vinyl is an audibly inferior medium to a
good digital chain. So much worse that you need highly trained
professionals to work around the limitations to create a bearable
product. Some people might still prefer the sound. But that has nothing
to do with vinyl being the measurably better medium.
P.S.: I still like my vinyl collection of records. The haptics. The
nostalgia. The big pictures on the covers.. The handling of a pair of
Technics MK1210 and a good mixer is still awesome for mixes, etc..
