RE: Start with the dictionary definition of "digital"

Clearly the line between what is an analog process is what is considered 'not' is a bit dubious. Your point is well taken, and not germane to where this thread started, although once that got debunked it drifted pretty wildly afterwards...

I look at things from an engineering standpoint as that is my training. And having built class D amps, know that they are an entirely analog process. As I mentioned earlier on in this train wreck, class D lends itself nicely to hybridization with a DAC for a more direct-conversion process, but its wholly inaccurate to say that such an amplifier it truly digital when an obviously analog process is employed. The guy that started this was insisting that class D was digital all the way to the output, which really isn't true at all- otherwise dead time circuits and other aspects of class D operation simply would not be needed.
