I agree. But I also still stand by my opinion that if you are comparing
audio quality of analog vs. digital you can't use "good quality digital"
vs. "defective analog" as your comparison systems.
The major area of advantage of digital over analog is that of cost. For
well under $1k, you can get a fully digital recording system (a PC) that
is a multi-track recorder, tons of effects, that has respectable specs.
That same money buying analog will get you a Tascam Portastudio and one
cheap effects unit. Comparing the audio of a DAW system to that of a
Portastudio shows the obvious price advantage.
However, if you remove the cost element from the argument, and compare a
QUALITY analog recording system to a digital system, the analog system
sounds vastly better. It's just going to be out of the reach of most of
us here, and is going to be much larger.
