The physical record is not the music. It carries the music in an easy to replace form.
So I have no special need to worry about 'losing' the music. (aside from total nuclear destruction)
Sure I like the records and CDs I own. But I can throw them out too....
Speaking of records to die for.....
Since I got my Magnepan 20.7s dialed in/broken in.. I have a whole NEW set of 'best music;. Mostly different than what I used to favor.
All due to the spectacularly better sound.
Some prerecorded music really sounds better ... far better than before. and sadly, some has the same veiled* muffled** sound it used to. And some have revealed they suck in ways I never imagined!
* ** are recordings that used to sound great. but compared to the new revelations of my system, now, in comparison, sound muffled and veiled compared to some other recordings, which show way more than I ever thought possible. (And SOME of those better include old recordings from the 1940; 50's 60's...)
If I chose one artist to represent this.. It would be Ani DiFranco on the plus side. And Tori Amos on the bad side. (Like some fool added reverb or some sort of craptastic manipulation to Tori's voice in a really poor way... Gawd awful IMO. Where Ani sounds like she is in my living room...
Pre-20.7 I like Tori, and had little use for Ani. Post 20.7 the reverse.
