Calm down, there are people who don't listen to pop and mainstream hiphop, and studios that cater to their needs. If all "studios don't need aduiophile quality," then what are we doing with "audiophile quality" when we're just going to play crap through them anyway?
Unless of course these are crap by your standards because your USB cable cost more than each of these.
So much for metal being "just noise." And this isn't Telarc, etc, BTW.
Are those crap too? Again, not Telarc - it's the composer's home studio.
OK so the output from that session wasn't exactly my favorite album, with WISHMASTER in all aspects being my favorite. Too high gain and style differences aside however even this was fantastic on the Contour S5.4, Stella Utopia, Guarneri Evolution, and Volla (just don't expect, for example, the imaging on a Telarc recording of a Beethoven performance). Sadly I haven't tried either album on a B&W 800 series to get an idea of what they were hearing when they tested the discs.
