I agree that there is no point in buying a vinyl LP cut from a CD or digital master. I try to research that before buying a title and if that is the case, I'll pass. I usually look for a vinyl alternative when the CD is brickwalled - the vinyl almost always sounds better. Van Halen "A Different Kind Of Truth" sound awful on CD, great on vinyl. Rush "Clockwork Angels" and Blue Oyster Cult "The Symbol Remains" are a couple of recent ones I can think of that the vinyl beats the CD.I've seen a few tight fit examples but not grossly undersized. I haven't been buying much vinyl since most audio sources became digital. Give me the most lossless source, please and thank you! And now with the "resurgence" for the facsimile vinyl experience and vinyl being cut from the 44.1k CD master most often...
