Dear everyone downloading the vinyl rip,
This album was produced and mastered on a computer, digitally, and released losslessly in a 24-bit digital format. What you are downloading is an imperfect digitalization of an imperfect analogization of something that was created digitally, and is available in its original, perfect source in any digital release format (WEB, CD). If the bass sounds “warmer”, if the mids have “more clarity”, then these are deviations from the intended album’s sound and should be regarded as detractions from the possibility of accurate recreation of the actual audio data."
