Not many topics divide the audio community as much as the war of “analog vs digital”. One reason for this is that there are many myths surrounding the “magic of analog” and the “harshness of digital”. It is time to explain where those stem from and whether they are still relevant today. Can we hear differences – even now? Or are “analog sound” and “digital sound” just terms that describe what used to be characteristic differences, that technology and engineering knowledge have long overcome?
