I am referring to the faithfulness of the reproduction, when
comparing analogue to digital. On paper, an analogue signal is an exact

approximation of the original, even if it is very close.

Couldn't agree more. Of course, "the sweet spot" can vary from
individual to individual. Also upgrading, for example say speaker cable,
can improve the sound of your music collection that much more.
