    Digital/HDTV's are available in both 16:9 and 4:3 ratio sizes

    HDTV broadcasts are all in 16:9

    DVD's can be either - or sometimes both on the same disc

    I totally agree with your comments about analogue signals being more suceptible to noise and attenuation than digital ones. After all, there are only two tones being generated digitally, so if a device gets them mixed up it's got serious problems

    But I stand my ground on CD audio being inferior to high-end turntables - I'm talking the players that cost thousands of $$$ (back in the 80's as well). Even though CD audio has an exceptionally high sampling rate, some subtle signals are lost due to the digitising of the signal - only an analogue waveform can replicate these signals faithfully. :)

    I agree there is a measureable difference between a perfect analog signal and the digital equivalent - as long as the analog signal isn't produced from a digital master.

    But I have a problem with anyone who says they can actually hear it.

    Even with the best turntable in the world - you still have pressed vinyl as the recording media - that's not a perfect analog signal.

    I guess we'll have to disagree on this subject - don't worry we're all different :p

    Back on topic, I know some studios use better quality digital masters than CD-ROMs, an audio CD has a data rate of about 1400Kbps, some of these studio masters can be as high as 10Mbps :eek:
