"One's are One's and zero's are zero's, right? OK, I can concede to that. However, when you take those one's and zero's and arrange them into groups of 1's and 0's to represent "samples" of music [that may not altogether represent the original sound and locational cues, as you will read on about later]"
I agree with James; you're confusing the definition of digital "sampling" with something else. Yes; the musical signal's AMPLITUDE at each sample is conveyed via "groups" of 1's/0's (bytes) that are simply the binary number representation of signal magnitude. For CD's these "samples" are taken at ~44k Hz (i.e., 44,000 samples per second of music). THEORETICALLY this is "good enough" to allow the DAC to re-create the original analog signal with fidelity to 22k Hz. As to "original sound and locational cues" and microphone locations, etc., digital vs analog has nothing to do with this. HOW the sound stage is recorded in the studio (or wherever) is independent of how faithfully this info is recorded (from wherever the engineer chooses to place the mics or however), stored (whether as an analog signal or as 44,000 descrete digital samples per second) and then subsequently "re-created" by a DAC (or phono cartridge) and then amplified and "broadcast" in stereo out into your room via speakers (to hopefully re-create the original soundstage, etc.).
