[sdiy] Digital is more analog than analog... and it has 319 dB headroom...

I'm guessing this guy's brain has a digital audio input jack, otherwise 
how else does he plan to enjoy that 319dB of dynamic range!?!?!?  Heaven 
forbid he has to convert his digital information to an analogue voltage 
first and to amplify it and put it through analogue headphones or 
loudspeakers before he gets to enjoy it!


So from the signal-to-noise perspective, modern digital is 219db better 
than analog at doing its job of modeling a quantity faithfully. Oh, 
that’s just 89 billion times better, (no charge for the sarcasm)
