I prefer analog processed music. In every manner of reproduction. It sounds, to me, natural...more like the way it originated at the moment of ... 'creation' I guess is the word. When the fingers or pick or bow or diaphragm initiate the first effort the note, through the down or up stroke or the first waiver of vibrato. A digitally processed signal has just never "felt" right to me. But... There is a lot to be said for the physical element. When one is carrying their own equipment into a venue of perhaps "questionable" repute*, where the audience might be more interested in acquiring a companion with which to share their bed, than the subtle nuances of tone and timbre... Digitally processed solid state is one hell of a lot lighter. *where no one cares, from the "electrician" who jury-rigged the stage circuits, to the fellow who's had one too many and determined to show it ... sort of venue.
