Analog vs Digital / Cassette vs CD

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I've been reading about this and digital audio can never sound as great as analog. Ok, i'm confuse. I always thought Digital is better than analog. So ...

1. Use an external DAC with your CD player for analog quality?
2. A cassette player will sound better than a cd ? I don't have a cassette player laying around but I doubt it would sound better then cd?
3. The analog audio RCA output behind your receiver is better than using a digital coaxial? I thought it was vice versa?

Cassettes were never any good. Narrow tape running at 1.75 IPS never made a good sound. The only thing the cassette beat out was the 8 Track Tape. smile.gif

Aww come on now, you haven't lived unless you've listened to a slightly melted Led Zeppelin 8-track biggrin.gif At the time, and considering what they replaced, cassettes were the best thing going. We'll be saying the same about CD's someday if Neil Young has his way.

For whatever dumbarsed reason I still have a couple of boxes of cassettes, but many of them were our own audition or performance copies. I sold my Sony ES deck years ago.
