I am new to your site. I have read some of your postings (including other sites) with much gusto.
For the digital LP recording, I am (was) tempted to do the same, but given the fact that I have absolutely no personal experience in digital audio, I am hesitating to realize such an archive.My idea is, to use no RIAA correction for digital recording and play it straight to the A/D of ones choice. The benefits are (from my point of view) , you have a 'direct' copy of the LP and you can use some sort of software RIAA or the phono stage for playback.My wishful thinking was to have some sort of uncorrected DSD stream (Korg,...) to the hard disk for archiving and then create the copies as needed.But reading lots of articles (and thinking) about digital audio, lead me to shift this to the far future.Curious, to know what your outcomes are.

If you read my site then you know that stay away from digital crossovers as my fundamental believe is that digital even theoretically is unable to filter properly. Have you heard my slogan “analog can’t delay, digital can’t filter”. The reality is that it is a plagiarism and I took it from one of the most prominent and celebrated digital designer of our times. Unfortunately my own experience with digital filtration and volume controls (which is the same) very much supports this stolen slogan.
Sure you can dub your raw LP to DSD stream and to wait when a good digital filtration will be invented, BTW it will never be on DSD level but it will always be on PCM level. You can also freeze yourself in cryogenics and un-froze in 500 years to be “fresh” when good filtering digital becomes available. I do not think that it EVER become available. BTW, when you un-froze then can you accept a few things from my “to do list”?
Unquestionably the idea of digital RIAA filtration is elegant but I very much doubt that it ever be implemented more than at karaoke level. Rgs,
