    A new post on another forum seems appropriate here. :)

    “My analog front end is a VPI classic, Benz Ace Cartridge, and Nova II phono preamp.

    My current digital front end is Roon/HQPlayer/T+A DAC8 DSD.

    I believe that price wise both front ends are equivalent. (about $5k).

    However, You do need a computer to run Roon and HQPlayer but most people already own one.

    My Recent experience: The sound coming out of the digital front end is outstanding. The analog was always my reference but now my digital tops my analog.

    My conclusion is that dollar for dollar, if all you want to spend is $5k for a front end, digital gives you better value and sound.

    Today I do not know where the dollar threshold would be when analog can sound better than digital. But not too long ago, it was easy for a relatively cheap analog front end to beat digital products costing much more.

    Times are changing.”

    Yup, hell HAS frozen over. The world has actually slowed down in time. Jesse has entered into the dark side. The war is over. Kinda sad about that.

    Rock on Jesse.

    What's next? Getting Jesse to go toward the convenience crowd and getting a media server?

    I don't know about that, Tony. He already amassed 30 some odd albums and seems to be enjoying the sound. Especially the lower octaves. Spoke with him at length last night and he is actually interested in a steam cleaner and possibly a handheld steam cleaner.

    Jesse, here is an example of what I was talking about. Use this with the 4 degree tip.

    Nice table Jesse, I never imagined you as an analog guy. It will only be a matter of time before all the forums he frequents is overwhelmed with analog vs digital threads started by him.

    I couldn't figure out what this thread was about now I know. Jesse has gone analog, and will be hanging out in record stores, and attending record store day, and posting about etchings in the run out grooves. :#

    I think Joe Walsh had Jesse in mind when he penned this here tune. This one is dedicated to our very own Analog Man Jesse :D

    What's wrong with vinyl I think it sounds great LP's 45's 78's. Joe couldn't of said it better.
