its generally accepted by experts in the guitar field that modelling < solid state < valve

but what about other things?

it seems like with most technology, we're progressing more towards digital than towards analogue, especially cameras, TV screens, etc.

would it be possible to make a "valve/tube" tv or camera? something that has the "soul" of an analogue piece of equipment, but the functionality of a digital one? of course they probably wouldnt have valves/tubes like amps, but the equivalent?

Yes, wouldnt it be great if something had soul AND advanced technolegy. Well, in most cases a TV can look good but its up to a TV shows prodeucers, writers and director to give it "soul". And thats the case with most things.

Sound being an obvious exception... for now.

i cant really think of any electronics that arent related to sound that would benefit from being analog. i mean i dont think an old ass TV is in any way better than the new flat screen LCD HD DVD ****. But when it comes to sound, analog is the way to go.

edit: but then again i definately prefer film slr cameras over digital ones.

digital effects generally sound sterile and flat, and if they are modelling another popular analog effect, it rarely (if ever) sounds as good.

We use tubes and analouge because they sound slightly crappy, giving them a realler sound. That made no sense, but it does if you think about it.

Vinyl and film FTW. The only reason I use digital anything is out of convenience, not preference.

It would be awesome but they would have to friggin huge, wich is something ppl dont want these days, and its common fact that a digital signal is a hell of alot better than an analogue signal when it comes to TV. IMO other than gutiar related equipment digital is the future.

I like vinyl, it really does sound awesome and practically never wears out (it's a bit fragile, though), but DVDs are really awesome. I don't like cassettes at all.

But I totally use all analog amps and stuff. Vintage FTW.

To all the people who use technology here, I'm going to go put on my bell bottoms and listen to my vinyl for a while. Maybe I'll even bust out the o'l 10inch black and white TV.

Apparently really good vinyl is better than anything digital, because of the whole compression factor. 180 gram virgin vinyl is like th best quality medium ever...so I've read.
