Is there a truely lossless digital format? I'd argue that there might be digital formats which oversample to the point where a human shouldn't be able to discern a difference between digital and analog, but it's not truely lossless unless it's analog.

Ultimately, any conversion of audio (an analog source) to digital is based on sample frequency which by the very nature of digital is limited.
