What do you think which ones are better, original recordings or remastered editions of music albums? I'm not a professional but many times a remaster sounded much better than original for my ears for example clearer and softer sound, but also many times a remaster sounded worse than original with too much loudness . So what's your opinion? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UjQc0dM4H4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9N9mUhd7lY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkkqsN69Jac http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-v6ML2DsBfA What do you think about deep purples remasters, first three albums remastered in 2000 and other eight Anniversary Editions? They sound better to me than originals. What about black sabbath... the first 8 albums with ozzy from 2004 black box remasters sound much clearer but they are a bit loud, also the 2008 remasters of Heaven And Hell and Mob Rules sound very rough and there is too much loudness. What about Dire Straits, 1996 remasters? They are a bit louder but i like the clearer sound and the crisp treble. I always use a equalizer when listening to music 2 equalizers exactly, one from Windows Media Player and one from pc's onboard Realtek sound card. I use "Deluxe DLS 2118" 2.1 speakers 2 x 12.5w 4 OHM speakers and 40w 8 OHM subwoofer. It's not a professional equipment but still can hear the difference.
