I'm afraid it's more like we've entered a world where live music is no
longer the reference. Stop a moment and think about what the words "High
Fidelity" mean. This is real basic stuff that we audio folk tend to lose
sight of. Most of the recordings that we cherish were a sincere attempt at
reproducing the experience of a live musical performance.
Something to be optimistic about is the fact that that record sales are in
the toilet. I strongly suspect young people aren't buying recordings for the
very same reasons we aren't buying new recordings. All of the talk blaming
new technology is just an excuse because the sales of new titles have been
in the toilet for over a decade. Enrico Caruso proved that it is about the
content a century ago and Harry Potter just proved it once again.
