If the entire setup from source to speaker is analog, you can

Digital is cheaper to get acceptable-to-good quality, but it has its limits. If you want to go past its limits, you need to use analog.
Most analog **** is expensive and bulky. People don't want that, especially considering most
people wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two. But a hardcore audiophile wants analog through and through.
Sound is analog in nature. To change to digital to process, then back to analog to amplify, that's like taking a vector image, turning it into pixels, then trying to trace back over it to make another vector. You're never going to get the exact same thing you put into it, even if you can get pretty close.
