I hate "does it sound like tubes", "sound analogue", "sound digital", "sound like solid state" perspective/questions.
IMO the lines between formats is so diminished the relevant question is "how close is it to the real thing"
i wish i could un-like a post.
this is where the thread goes to hell.
[...] It seems to me every type of component benefits greatly from vibration control. In my experiments it really doesnt matter which component you treat, everything seems ballpark similarly affected, I get nearly the same effect from treating my powerstrip as my preamp.
Damn...This thread is hazardous to my piggy bank.
Lets see what happens when the Extreme arrives.....
Can you describe more in what ways the vinyl has pulled so far ahead of digital now?
I can make an educated guess
There is something very profound happening when lowering vibration induced distortion. Typical audiophile jargon would be increased dynamics, both micro and macro, increased detail, better rendering of texture, more solid and more 3 dimenional imaging, better retrieval of soundstage / ambient cues etc.
However that doesn’t capture something which is hard to put into words. The best I can come up with is a very profound removal of stress and unaturalness allowing your system and room not just to playback a recording but to morph into an actual event happening with you smack down in the middle of it. It’s no longer just listening to music, it’s experiencing music.
If we only apply this sort of care to our vinyl playback systems, digital will never catch up.
