First we had analog TV. Digital TV pix infinitely better.
First records were analog....then digital discs sound much better.
Those who praise analog sound electronics cannot prove their contention either theoretically or in real A/B comparison.
What the analog preference is, is simply the fact that these people are liking the filtering action in analog recording technology. And some people were weaned on analog years ago and they want that same sound in their electroniic devices.
The above assumes a high digital sampling rate. (early digitals used technology that altered the sound...not so today.) And assumes that the digital processing is correctly done. Ed
Advice for newbies. Buy and use modern digital aids....in fact you would have a hard time finding analog aids being marketed today. Ed
