REVIEW OF DONATELLO WITH MEDITERRANEO AND B-7 BY MARJA & HENK

“Playing vinyl remains a magical event. The sound of a good analog system isn’t comparable to digital even if for a great part that too is analog. Recall that CD is an analog medium. There are no bits or bytes embedded, just pitted mechanical grooves. Only during later signal processing are those pits and lands converted to 1s and 0s. Likewise for streaming sources where the incoming signal is a quasi square wave which represents one of two states. A true square wave would of course require unlimited bandwidth of which our electronics aren’t capable. Hence the incoming digital signal is already distorted (approximated) plus prone to external influences upon the digital cable. Error correction and effective filters of all sorts like our Pink Faun LAN isolator help but the damage is done. To digress no further, we return to analogue.”
