The thing is that digital signals will still be affected by the quality of the equipment in addition to the signal conversion errors. It's basically the same process, except digital audio has the extra conversion step. Anyway, I'm only arguing this from a theoretical perspective. I don't own an analog audio system, all of my music is in digital format, and it's good enough for me :thumb:. This discussion is just for the fun of it.Right, imperfections in the equipment is still an imperfection in the recording. I didn't say one was better, both have their cons. No analog equipment, recording or playback, is perfect so therefore analog still has imperfections. In theory, it can offer perfect music quality, but in theory (with a perfect sampling rate) so can digital. Both are imperfect, and thus its open to debate.
I don't have time to find a better source, but Analog recording vs. digital recording - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The article doesn't say one way or another, it mentions the debate thereof.
Regarding your edit: It's more accurately recorded perhaps, but the quality of playback is much more depending on the quality of the system you have. The fundamental flaws in digital recordings are in the recording process, the fundamental flaws of analog are in its playback. Or so I've found anyways.
The reason digital audio is used nowadays is not because of quality, it's because of simplicity. It's much easier to import an audio file into Protools and master it than it is to cut and splice a bunch of magnetic tapes.well I hate to tell you with the power of computer now a days there a good reason everything has gone digital. all very good points i am no sound engineer but i know several like i said i built a rig for the S engineer out at casino rama and all he was on about was digital this and digital that analog has gone the way of the doe doe bird his words not mine and this was 4 or 5 years ago.
I mean almost all the music i listen to is new so this is the reason i like digital. the hate crackling and popping. jmo never facts who the hell i am i to tell anyone anything.:biggrin:
just thought seeing records was funny is all back to topic very nice setup on the double monitor and tv
