Vinyl is equivalent to which digital bit-depth and sampling rate?

If such jitter were a problem (which it is not) then it is conceivable that a reference tone could be added into the analog signal, then filtered out of the digital data. Of course, the analog reference tone is likely to have much more jitter than the A/D.

all those ppl who were happy with Vinyl are now seeking better than CD sound quality through their SACDs and the general discussion on >16/44 formats!

Yes, and I see this in pro audio circles too. The same recording engineers who love analog tape lament that even the best digital converters aren't transparent enough for them. Sheesh.

No reason to think A/D jitter is any less of a problem than D/A jitter. Just like non-OFC power lines going down the highway are just as much a problem as a non-gourmet power line from the wall to your amplifier.

It's amazing what you can do with a bit of oversampling and M/S distortion.

I am clearly having a Monday morning sydrome...
Why are they using those things? unsure.gif
