I would like to record my vinyl and would like to know what the effective bit rate is of a vinyl (LP) recording? Anyone? Or is this a silly question?

I am sure he was just curious as to which bitrates are reasonable and which are overkill. Personally I would start with 16/44.1 waveform and compress with FLAC, if only to keep it consistent with your CD rips. You could then transcode into LAME, etc. if you like. 24/192 etc. are probably overdoing it. I am sure your tonearm, cartridge, phono stage, and ADC, are the real limiting factors here, so long as you select a reasonably wide bitrate.
