In his review of the dCS Scarlatti and Puccini Players Jonathan Valin lists what he considers the strengths of digital. One strength he didn't include in his list is pitch stability. To me, this is the most obvious - and most musically important - strength of digital in comparison with analog. Because most records are eccentric, none of the best record players currently on the market (or at least that I've seen reviewed in the pages of TAS) can provide stable pitch. Until one of the current turntable manufacturers provides a feature that Nakamichi did - computerized center search - finding and using a used Nakamichi is the only analog option for those like me who consider pitch stability essential when listening to music.
