Analog was fine when that's all we had, but there's something to be said about the clarity and consistency of digital.

Analog is more limited in frequency response, has a worse signal-to-noise ratio, and is highly prone to the effects of mechanical deformities (record scratches, magnetism defects, tape defects, etc.)

Mechanical interfaces introduce noise and errors; getting in the way of the music. Touching a needle to a groove to transfer the music... pushing a tape head against a moving tape... There's nothing pure about music reproduction with those approaches.

I actually enjoyed ditching those old cassettes, records, and videocassettes, and moving to CD, DVD, and mp3 exclusively. No need for nostalgia when the newer technology sounds and is so much better.

I personally stop caring about anything past 2004. It is downhill from then on.
