Whether it's audio or video we trade analog flaws for digital flaws. Analog flaws can be tweaked to a certain point and that's it. Digital flaws are where the efforts are being applied and paying off.
Vinyl replaced by CD
Laserdiscs replaced by DVD
DVD replaced by Blue-Ray/HD-DVD
Reason replaced by emotion
I like how you put that together. But emotion, the feeling we get from music, is why we are having these discussions. In fact, the air, ambience, the character if you will, that had us all obviously loving analog/vinyl, still, seems to be missing, to a lesser degree with digital, and cd.
