To me, the biggest problem isn't that people like analog gear. I really don't care that someone else is lusting over a room full of Jupiters, Moogs, Andromedas, or front-end gear, etc. There is a certain mystique and sense of quality to many people regarding analog gear, and I can understand that. Generally speaking, analog gear is well made, so it is usually synonymous with quality, but I think that many people have a natural tendency to over-extend that perception when it comes to its sound. So, the bottom line for me is that if other people want a room full of analog gear, regardless of whether or not they're creating music with it, who am I to question it?
What annoys me is the constant debating over the supposed superiority of analog over digital sound. Blind tests show over and over that most people can't tell the difference and, once it's in the mix (and compressed to mp3), nobody can tell anymore and who the hell cares anyway, other than the person who created it? It's a silly debate.
