    There's no need to picture molecules in this instance.
    Would be a pretty awesome simulation if the movement of single molecules would be calculated according to different sound waves. There must be labs that do that though.

    I'd take single lines any time ;-)

    I'll do my best to keep things simple.

    First you need to understand analogue and digital, for this case. Analogue is 'real world' information. In this case, sound waves. Digital is a representation of analogue in a digital format, 1s and 0s.

    What happens first is the conversion of an analogue signal into digital. This happens by the use of a Analogue Digital Converter (ADC). They're quite complex so I'll keep this simple as possible. ADC have a resolution. This resolution generally represents its sample rate of the analogue signal. You may have heard of 16bit sound cards? The bits is the resolution. Commercial bit rates are around 24bits. This means you'll get a high quality of sampling.

    Now when you have the information stored as digital you need to convert it back to analogue as we can't hear digital. So this means you need a Digital Analogue Converter (DAC). A DAC, like an ADC has a sample rate as well. What this does is it takes the digital information and converts it back to an analogue signal so we can hear the sound. A speaker, for example, doesn't work on a digital signal, it requires an analogue signal. A speaker is very much like our ear. It receives a signal and it vibrates to produce sound.

    All sound media works like this. There is no other way to do it as far as I know. Does that make sense?

    I had to read it 5 times to get it and visualize it. So the first part doesn't really apply to mp3, or cd players Or any music playing device but more if its to analyze it on the computer because it only reads 0 and 1. The second part applys to the things that produce music. Since its being converted to analog so we can hear it needs electricity to travel up the wires to hit the driver to make sound.
    That's how I understood it

    Im sure you learn this in secondary school well I learnt all this in secondary school.

    About sound waves and what they do etc.

    You're more or less right. The ADC is used a the 'recording' stage of the music, in our example. Most music studios are digital these days. The DAC is what is used in players so we can here the music.

    There's lots more information but it doesn't matter. That's all you really need to know. In the case of our smartphones we would have both a ADC and DAC on it because we have a microphone and a speaker. :)

    I really want a SONY XPERIA Z2 with WP8.1 on it!

    That will be an instant buy from myself.
    Sony wasn't on their list when they announced the OEM's. So for now, no Sony WPs. I prefer Lumias anyways. But the z2 is still spectacular, and would be nice with WP.
