However, if plain analog equipment does sound better than digital
equipment or not is off-topic. Still important is, that even digital
gear at some point converts from/to analog and apart from the quality
of the converters, the quality of the digital gear's analog domain does
matter a lot. If you want to experience a high class headphone amp,
listen to the headphone output of a RME card and compare it with
another good headphone amp, fed by a digital output of a the same RME
card or by a balanced or unbalanced analog output of the same card.
Usually the result is that clear, that there's no need for blind or
double blind tests.
