Did you even read the Digital EQ Fact & Myth article which compared a ton of different digital EQs? http://rhythminmind.net/1313/?p=361 Of course digital will sound better. But when? In 20 years? 30 years? Maybe quantum computing will have taken over before it happens. Right now it's all academic. Digital doesn't inherently sound like anything other than the dulling effect convertors have. Digital EQs and compressors are functional but basically sound horrible - and they all sound the same. What sounds good to people is what sounds natural - and real physics has a HUGE edge as far as that goes at present. Don't worry about it and stop talking about things you have no firsthand experience of (and probably no ear for anyway - you should find the sound of DAWs and VSTs horrible).
