RE: Why are CDs digitized from master tapes?

Exactly my point that I have made many times on the Asylum. While most of my CD's that are rebaters of LPs are inferior to the LPs, I have some that are superior. West Side Story comes to mind as a CD that blows away the LP (I have both). It is not enough to have the CD and LP and say that because the LP sounds better that analog is superior. I am heavily invested in both, because I go where the music is and now the music is in both digital an analog medias. While I prefer to have excellent sound, I listen to both bootleg LPs and 78s, because the music is there. In my pursuit of music, I am still not convinced that either medium is superior. Greatness is found in the gestalt that come from the totality of all aspect of the recording/mastering/media processing.
