Hello everybody, my name is Jordan, and I'm new to this forum. As you can tell from the title of this thread, my question deals with the sound quality of vinyl versus hi-def digital audio formats. I haven't been able to get an SACD / DVD-A player, so my only experience with digital sound has been from CDs (which, as I'm sure you can imagine hasn't been that enjoyable of an experience ) Meanwhile, on the analog side, I have experiemented with vinyl and type-IV audiocassettes, of which I prefer the former. Does SACD / DVD-A really duplicate the warmth and audio fidelity that analog sound has? Would it be worthwhile to get a hi-def audio format now, or are these formats slowly dying out?
