Really, why?Why did you do that? :scratch:
Because the people who control the industry aren't the ones who buy niche products and specialty recordings that are of great quality. It is the lay person who goes to the local big box and picks up the CD on the top of the charts. Sadly, nearly all, if not all, of these discs are horribly compressed and the majority of people do not realize that this happens. So I figured I could open a few eyes and find out if people really prefer this compression or if they are just unknowingly accepting it.
In the end, if any change is going to happen it will not be because of us, the audio nuts, but because of the average consumer and no I don't think my single study will change much if anything, but it is a start in the right direction as I see it.
