Azrael, this is exactly why I asked how he was recording. I didn't say mic'ed recording sounds better than direct, or vice versa. Recording direct like THIS creates a lot of fuzziness, so, I expected he did it this way.
Second, you would have to have REALLY crappy and old AD and DA converters to really **** up a signal. I mean, lets face it, a direct recording of a Marshall amp is just not going to sound the same as a nicely mic'ed up one(which is more like it sound when sitting on front of the speaker) through a nice mic pre-amp.
Also, is 32 bits used a lot nowadays? The hard disk recorders I've worked with only supported 16 and 24, so, I'd be surprised if a soundblaster actually supports 32.(though soundblasters are crap anyway, since they dont have an internal clock)
