You above who think a digital picture has more resolution than analog are the ones who are wrong ! What sounds better, a digital CD or a vinyl record of a classical guitar ? Did you know that because of the coldness of digital there is a huge reversion back to vinyl within the serious listeners of music ( IE, not the general public who don't know or care how their recorded music is delivered to them ) ? Why ? Because there are no machine gunned gaps within each occurring sound. Lets say a trombone begins a note then slides it up an octave. Both in C , a pianist does the same. The pianist is going fast enough across the keyboard that it seems to have, well, no seams between notes. This is a digital representation of a glissando. The bone's gliss from start to finish has no gaps in its glissando across the octave (regardless of the fact the the piano's is diatonic [white keys] and bone's is smoother than even chromatic ). This is what the diff between an a digital format and an analog format. Digital is what uses the Etch a Sketch method to give the illusion of a curve, just like the piano's. An analog (that's why it's called that ) curve in picture tube is not gapped, just like the trombone's slide. The industry has foisted the digital screen experience on us in order to be able to mass produce TVs and TV screens at half or less, the cost and at twice or more the rate of production and lower shipping weight, all based on semiconductors/chips. My Trinitron, box, and small outdoor antenna (used indoors), gives a mind blowing sharp, clear, smooth, perfect color picture, brought in via digital, but then converted back to analog. I've stood in Best Buys many times and have watched those cold, color bleeding, gigantic TV screens. ..Admittedly, I know they have better resolution than ever. But they will never be smooth and natural like analog; just tighter an etch-a-sketch illusion, of it.
<< Look very closely at this. See the curves ! They're stepped, digital illusions of curvature. You don't get this on a cathode-ray picture tube. This is the piano. Trinitron is the trombone.
