Every time you listen to a well mastered recording you hear that. Might nbot be “see-able” but we experience it every day! I’ve had enough time at the feet of some masters to realize it is possible.

Making audio especially to fit some limitation of playback equipment is a fool’s errand - if you make it the best you can, it will be fine! Otherwise you will be “dumbing down" the product. Just because some listeners might be “dumb” or limited in equipment or sensibilities is no reason to cater to the limitations.

My opinion is not humble, but it IS practical! :-)
