Re: un-known lineage category

The reason silver is preferred is because at least you have something that contains the original digitization of it, without additional digital generations. This, of course, lowers the chance of there being flaws. If, as is the case with Pink Floyd and many other bands, material that has been pressed to silver disc begins to circulate in better form, we'd prefer those versions over the silvers. We're just trying to have a place where the best possible circulating recording (I understand that many masters are hoarded or only traded in elite circles) can be seeded. That is our philosophy, and I believe we've come up with a pretty good set of guidelines for enforcing it.
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
