its all an illusion. the mind fills in what is missing from your stereo system. that's why listening to a table radio is just as statisfying, as far as appreciation of music is concerned. obviously, a table radio may not compete with a stereo system with respect to the usual audiophile criteria.
the person is more important than the stereo system as far as receiving the benefits of listening to music.
