OTOH storage of very good sounding professional analog tapes has got
pitfalls. Assumed professional analog recordings should sound better
than professional digital recordings, perhaps they don't, it's just an
arbitrary assumption, then we shouldn't underrate the issue of
maintaining the archiving. An analog copy does reduce the quality of
the original recording, there is nothing such as a perfect analog copy.
A digital copy doesn't reduce the quality, at least not a perfect
digital copy and perfect digital copies are possible. When coping from
one consumer DAT to another consumer DAT via S/PDIF I experienced
artefacts, but something like this shouldn't happen, if we copy a file
from one HDD to another ;).
