RE: Why are CDs digitized from master tapes?

>I assume it would be better to take the source closest to the performance and add whatever coloration is wanted while avoiding coloration that isn't wanted.

That's the clincher. Some people have the money, time, expertise, patience etc. to build a holy grail of a turntable/tonearm/cartridge/wiring/SUT/phono/cabling. The resulting sound tends to be extremely desirable, by many accounts of people who give such a precious system a listen.

So the idea is to try and replicate that exact sound (coloration and whatever else) in a digital format. If that's possible/doable, it is hard to imagine there won't be any market for such products.
