Anything that is read or accessed as a continuous stream is experienced as analogue. Humans perceive everything in analogue—as a continuous stream of data and information to our senses. Similarly, the grooves in a record player or the magnetic data stored on an audio or video tape is typically a representation of analogue data. In comparison, digital is an approximation of the audio or video signal. This means that analogue data is more accurate than digital data, but due to some inherent advantages with the digital format, analogue is being slowly eliminated.
