Concerts usually have terrible sound, and even orchestras are very dependent on where you’re seated. I go to concerts to be a part of the energy of the experience, but have low expectations for sound quality. My stereo setup is world’s better than live concerts that I’ve been at. Fun thing is that some of those shows are on CD/Internet and I can listen to them at home. Still, nothing beats the energy/comraderie of being a part of a great live performance.
