I was trying to show that if you sat in a theater listening to a live concert it would not sound the same if you sat at the front and then moved to the back . When building an amplifier not to a published design I and others have found that you can pick up any flaws in that design a lot easier with good quality headphones I was not talking of a recording studio.
I know about piezo electric tweeters as I know about ribbon tweeters and others but they still don't have the sensitivity of high quality electrostatic headphones.
Yes you should listen to music not detail but its the detail that gives life to the music without it and it sounds flat. Its just down to the amount of detail.
A lot of people like a smooth rounded sound that tubes do best but that is not me . I like a "live" presentation of music as though you are there near the stage listening to your favorite live music.Music with the right amount of "excitement" but not too much.
This is down to in the end to the person themselves you cant force someone to accept your principles unless they like what they hear.
Many people think that because Cd's are digital that they are ""perfect"" far from it .I have no problem telling a badly recorded CD from a high quality one such as -LINN/NAIM in the UK sell. All Cd's are not equal and if your equipment cant tell the difference then the resolving powers of it aren't to a high standard.
So yes detail shouldn't get in the way of music but lack of it isn't music.
