Thread Name: Why music sounds worse.
Subject: RE: Why music sounds worse.
Some years ago a record company put out some CDs - folk and early music - that had a label on saying that not only was there no compression whatever used, but also that some recording technique and mics had been used to display the complete dynamic range. I can't remember the label (I'd know if you told me), but recordings included the fiddler Laura Risk and some lute music. I know nothing about the technical issues here, but I do know I could hear the crystal clarity and they are beautiful *recordings*, as well as the music being great.
