Be it sight, sound, the smell, the touch.
Inside that we need so much,
The sight of a touch, or the scent of a sound,
Or the strength of an Oak with roots deep in the ground.
The wonder of flowers, to be covered, and then to burst up,
Thru tarmack, to the sun again,
Or to fly to the sun without burning a wing,
To lie in the meadow and hear the grass sing,
To have all these things in our memories hoard,
And to use them,
To help us,
It’s not only primitive people who are afraid or superstitious of cameras and photos. Have you seen peoples’ reactions to the Photos in the Freezer Tweak?
Music soothes the savage breast. Most things coming out of people’s speakers ain’t musical so nothin happens. Most of the time it’s two dimensional, thin, bland, compressed, no top end, no bottom end, congealed, like paper mache.

Haven’t the issues with RBCD been hashed over ad infinitum? (If that’s what you refer to when you use the term "CD".) High rez CDs of various types are certainly better than RBCD, if and only if the hi-rez technology was used during the recording process, which in itself suggests that the problems with RBCD that we can easily identify using science may also apply during the listening experience.
>>>>What I’ve been preaching the past few days on some other related threads is that problems with CD player constrain the CD from sounding like it should. Since I am one of the first to hear what CDs sound like when scattered laser light - including the invisible infrared portion which comprises most of it - is prevented from getting into the photodetector you’ll have to take my word for it. Obviously that’s not the only problem with CD players. And I’m taking about ANY digital player, SACD, DVD, BLU RAY and any variant of REDBOOK CD. CD players cannot cope very well with out of round CDs, scattered laser light, static electrical charge, magnetic fields, vibration caused by the transport mechanism or seismic vibration. I’m sure I’m forgetting others.
Kudos should go to tape, the medium the recording was made on. Tape is a natural medium. It breathes. Vinyl is simply the neutral repository for the taped information.howver, as I opined recently imho there’s nothing really wrong with CDs per second. The problem in terms of their sound quality arises when they are played using CDCplayers that are still fraught with problems. Like background scattered laser light getting into the not too swift photodetector.
