Yes definitely.  I participated in building a series of studios at a movie
facility.  In the end, the rooms were amazing and we had purchased and 
installed millions of dollars of digital equipment.  One day someone brought
in a turntable and we plugged it into the speakers and played the same album
on CD through the equipment we had just installed.  The CD was terrible in 
comparison.  These advances in digital technology
are still just a shell of the original high fidelity they try to emulate.
Even worse, our ears and eyes are getting used to it.  Almost all digital
of music have been very bad for quality of music.  I can't even listen to an
without wondering the whole time what I am missing.
