Default Vinyl from a Digital source bad? Maybe not.

Enjoyed this article.
It was nice to hear some experts discuss this topic.
Enjoy.

Great article - the conclusion I draw from it is that - it depends!

Like anything in audio, the care taken to capture the event and transfer it to something we can consume is the most important ingredient.

Agree.
This has been bothering me for so long and your conclusion is correct!
It just depends. I wish they treated pressings like organic grass fed beef.....labeled etc.
It just stinks there are people in the industry cutting corners instead of doing it right.

Thanks for the article Vic, as Tom said 'it depends' and to that add in the $$ / greed factor.

If someone wants to rip a Red Book quality master onto vinyl and sell it for less please let the customer know through some standardized code. AAD vs. DDD in the heyday of CD’s was useless.

These pressing plants cutting corners better hope their name does not get out, forums will easily call them out and make it known.
I know I have some records cut from CD/16bit, you can tell the difference, although it is not that many.
Any slowdown in vinyl sales (new) is connected with the long leadtimes and order files pressing plants have now. I suspect used records are selling like hotcakes.....

So far everything I buy is cut from 24bit master files and mastered for vinyl, the sound quality tells me this, as compared to a hi-rez file.
