When you have a noise "digital side" in close physical proximity to the analog "side", perhaps in a mobile device, then the "analog and digital sides" definitely do mix. It's entirely possible that these cards make an audible difference in various playback devices ... doesn't seem too likely but the effect that Sony is trying to reduce is similar to how placing a cell phone next to some playback devices induces audible differences. Plus, the best way to deal with noise is to prevent it in the first place!, not attempt to filter it out (I assume that's what you mean by "dealt with") "at the analog end of the audio circuit."

The vast majority of systems are mounted with short standoffs (6in) to the roof surface. Changing to a tracker would probably cost double or more. You save massively on installation costs when you can take advantage of west/south/east facing inclined planes that roofs represent. Also consider that many customers have upwards of two dozen modules, so it's no small feet to move all of them. The reason that systems face south is to maximize overall production. The best solution is to combine this with a storage system so that all that great production can be buffered and meted out as needed over the course of a whole day.
