I personally wrote to Andreas Spreer a few years ago regarding Tacet's Ravel Bolero etc. album, and he confirmed in his reply to me that the master was 24/96 PCM. So unless he had some kind of parallel analog tape recording going on too, I'm not sure you can count that title (or indeed most of the titles on your Tacet list) as an analog-originated recording (even though he did use tube equipment on some of them).
""Tube Only" means: only tube microphones and amplifiers were used for the recording. For transfer to a digital disc (CD, DVD or SACD) a connection to an A/D- or a DSD transformer must be activated. For the LP, however, (except for rare exceptions, justified for musical reasons) the signal is even stored on a tube tape recorder and then mastered with valve equipment, so that one would be right in saying that for the entire production not a single transistor was used."
So maybe that was the "rare exception?"
Also, it is not uncommon for modern analog recordings to have a hi res digital recording made off of the same mic feeds. Why not?
