    In a digital abyss - at the bottom of it, looking upwards.
    At a digital abyss - at the top, looking into it.

    I have no idea what a digital abyss might be, of course. I'm assuming that it is actually, or metaphorically, the same as all the other abysses.

    Hi panjandrum,
    I thought of providing the whole sentence but decided against it. Now I think I should have. And here it is:


    Since digital transmission deals with encoded signals, we always receive a clear picture which eventually ends up in digital abyss, i.e. when the signal is not sufficient for the decoding circuits, reception is lost completely.

    What do you think?
