RE: New Absolute Sound guest editorial by Jonathan Valin

While I share his preference for vinyl playback i have to say that what he said about digital here.... "No matter what the bit rate, no matter what the digital delivery system, you simply cannot "sample" the continuous-time sound of instruments or vocalists, turn it into discrete -time numbers, and then turn those back into instruments or vocalists without losing some of the very continuousness of presentation--the dense, constantly renewing, uninterrupted flow of articulation, dynamics and timbres--that is the very breath of musical life." Is complete B.S. Digital recording and playback is quite capable of complete audible transparency.
