Re: Chime in on my debate with AIX Records
I own several AIX discs and agree they sound great. I also own some regular CD's that sound very good. I think that the care of set up - good mike's and electronics and a good setup is maybe as important as the resolution. I think there are many old multi-miked, over processed recordings that would sound poor no matter what resolution they were recorded in. So if we simply push for those folks who make mediocre recordings to use higher resolution we won't get better sound. Buying better sounding disks from those who pay attention to the sound quality will push others to do likewise many of the smaller labels put out great quality of sound.
And of course we need to kill MP3, what's the sense of talking about sound quality and resolution if everyone is going to degrade whatever sound quality is available by compressing everything to MP3?
