It doesn't matter what side of that debate you come down on, because this stuff is fantastic.
The same people that hold that vinyl (analog) sounds better than CD (digital) are probably the same people that believe pipe organs are superior to electronic instruments. If Bach was alive today, he wouldn't be on a pipe organ - he'd be using cutting edge technology. And Beethoven would be saying, "Give me the digital"
How much did they want to sell this for, again? Worth every penny.
