Pro applications don't use vinyl.
If you were a cheap bastard stage-play producer you wouldn't use vinyl. You'd hire pros to make a multichannel, high-sample-rate digital recording of the pit orchestra using very expensive mics, and you'd hire pros to design the playback PA. If the PA was also in the pit no one would bitch about the lack of directional sound, even from close up.
Of course this would depend on how cheap of a bastard you are.
