I was arguing with somebody William Sommerwerck, claimed to be a recording engineer, at one forum who a lot of confusions in his head. William harassed me with their typical patronizing tone but as expected demonstrate more desire to preserve his status quo then understanding the subject. Among many of his “arguments” he asked a good question that I think well portray why he is lost in space:
“If you've never heard the original performance -- how can you know whether the reproduction is conveying what was in the original?”
The question looks very legitimate but ultimately in my view the question is a huge white flag in understanding the audio methods and audio objectives. Here is a homework for you: think about the William’s questions and his rational. I promise you that this thinking will bring you to many interesting discoveries.
