    This article is provided by EarLevel Engineering.   Most people who’ve looked at digital audio before know about the Nyquist theorem. If you sample an analog signal at a rate of at least twice its highest frequency component, you can convert it back to analog, passing through a low-pass filter, and get back the same thing you put in. Exactly. Perfectly. The Real World In the real world, though, many people argue that analog “sounds better.” How can this be,… View this post
