Analog is not lossless. The formula is wrong.

Digital isn't perfectly lossless, but it doesn't lose 10%. The formula is wrong.

No, that's not how it works. Analog recording is extemely limited in dynamic range and bandwidth. There's no improving not it. 16/44.1 is more than adequate in capturing it all.

I have no idea. It's everyone's responsibility to become informed, just as it's a liability not to be.
