Well i would say Yes for older music with equipment designed to be transferred to record. When you had 4 tracks or 8 tracks and you said wow!!!!! that was when you had NO room to make things such as you see in Rap insignificant sounds etc 100 overdubbs on the vocals (bc pros rappers use that many and MORE)
Not to mention every million dollar compressor turning the music waves into "blocks" its all artificial and no one will buy it. we crave REAL music from REAL instruments thats why rap and hip hop has killed the record industry.
All these things take up tracks on the recording. Protools alone can handlie hundreds of tracks. Your telling me with 2 speakers your going to emulate the sound of hundreds of different sounds going on not to mention wood, plastic, and metal is going to give off the same sound resonance of a guitar made from wood that pre dates the big bang origins?? Use reason.
"If you like a band, you should buy their stuff, its that simple. or if its pop, turn on the radio and you can hear it 10,000 times a day. "
Here once again we see the radio which is not the same as the CD. Each radio station has its EQ's set to a standard settings IE Rap has theirs rock pop country etc to learn what a band is doing why not set it to EQ's they intended the recording for? They play it off a Cd which is then "broadcasted" through satellites losing more sound quality using more electronics....can you understand formed sentences because if you could you would understand the point is to cut out electronic hum, why do you add all these other techs?? IN recording the most expensive equipment is designed to cut out the hum and make a silent mike.
