Interesting, but peace in the mideast probably has a better chance of succeeding.
Stereophile doing this is like me taking on my local cable company to lower their rates. Fat chance!
Maybe if PEople Magazine, Foxnews and CNN jump on the bandwagon. Everyone wants better sound, right?
In all seriousness, its nice to let ones dissatisfaction be known, but compression has always been a part of the recording industry out of necessity , and it does not bother me any more today than it did 40 years ago. In fact, more newly mastered CDs I really care about sound perfectly fine to me these days than ever before.
Way more people would complain these days about how their music sounds if this actually happened than will currently as things are.
I still might sign though. I've got only (dynamic range) to gain and nothing to lose. Nobody will be mining through this data and hold my listening preferences against me, right?
