The music I love the most does not seem to correlate to being well recorded or requiring high fidelity.
Shrill recordings played on a clock radio won’t emotionally grab me, so I do need a “base” level of quality sound recording and reproduction. But, there are huge diminishing returns as I spend mega bucks. I am NOT talking about diminishing returns in equipment pricing, but just generally, once a system is “good enough”, it really is “good enough”.
I found that once a piece of music gets through to me, making it higher-rez or on better equipment won’t take it to a higher emotional level for me… I am there and done.
