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

    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy.
