I remember being thrilled to hear the Echoplex tape hiss on "side 2" of Phaedra when I first heard it on CD.
I had a similar experience when I could hear cello players breathing as they played on CDs - often the timing fits the playing in some way or other. for me it added to the music rather than distracted - though if they were snuffling with a cold and sneezing that would not be nice.
Now on the subject of audiophilia...yes it gets crazy. Many of these guys have playback systems better than the gear used to originally record the music.
Yep, so often people with very expensive gear are looking for qualities and subtleties in recordings that are simply not there.
Phobos, it's ok, you can say it sucks
IMO, Steve writes his own press releases, as they are written the same way he discusses his music verbally. Could be wrong though. Pretty sure Ian Boddy writes all the press releases for his DIN label.
