Any of you finding they have trouble accepting the observation that some recordings you just can't enjoy due to their technical quality?
I listen mostly to electronic music and there's plenty of great recordings out there. Even a regular podcast, as long as the mix consists of decent recordings, can be more than fine. Sadly, I've had complete commercial albums that had terrible technical audio quality, where there's hardly any sound stage and all the elements and instruments are just dumped straight in front of you. I've also had tracks where the quality is mostly good, but there's one or two samples used that stand out in a bad way. When it's the cymbals, it is sometimes fully able to kill the enjoyment of the track.
I've had to say goodbye to quite a few recordings I used to like, which I can still listen to through my speakers and have no issue with. But I've found myself grown sensitive to the HD650's rendering of music to the point where I just get annoyed by those recordings that sound too tinny and narrow. I don't want to, I mean I would like to be able to enjoy those songs. It's just that I can't.
The talk about 16 bit or 24 bit, 128 kb/s or FLAC can be pretty interesting, but the one thing I dread the most is finding out the recording quality is bad. How about you guys? Was just wondering for instance if you've experienced this as an issue and with what genres you find it most troublesome.
