Steve - I'd be interested at the end of the day, after having listened to the PS Audio DMP extensively and keeping in mind your recent turntable acquisition, which paradigm you would prefer to listen to? Digital or vinyl? Let's say you have both the SACD and vinyl in pristine condition. Same mastering, more or less. Which do you sit down with?? I'm guessing you'll say, it depends on x factor and y factor. The DMP is pretty much as good as digital gets, more or less and your VPI table isn't far from the ultimate vinyl rig. It should be a good test! So please keep this in mind when you evaluate the DMP and get back to us!
