One thing that may be compromised for vinyl lovers and certain audiophiles, is the analog goodness of the original recording.
I do have the OST for all three OT films on vinyl, and can definitely hear advantages (and disadvantages) of analog.
I can’t say how “analogyness” affects psycho-acoustics (perception/enjoyment) of the movie: music, effects and dialog. But you’re gonna miss some stuff with 16bit/44.1 k.
If Mike V. has access to the digital copies of orig. tapes, it’d be interesting to know what rez LFL used for digitization (e.g., 24bit/192khz, etc.).
