I thought that was an excellent little video. But the test was a bit fast, no? They were supposed to tell verse to verse while the song was playing....the one golden ear mentioned he felt like he was guessing most of the time. Also, at the beginning, the Analog recording engineer says that a record will always sound better than a "severely compressed" mp3. So in the test, what was the bit rate of the digital used? Was it severely compressed, or lossless?
Nonetheless, the digital recording engineer and the artist hit the nail on the head- the whole recording process is much much easier digitally. There are just so many levels of digital recording quality that it depends on what the end user receives. Trends seem to say recordings sold will be of lesser quality.
And that is sad.
