We're not all millionaires chud.

I get that, and everyone prioritizes this stuff differently. But before the mp3 age, everyone seemed to have a stereo in their home. Now, most people I know will splurge on the tv that's too big for the room but literally have nothing better than an amazon essential bluetooth speaker to listen to music with.

Those same people with the massive TVs never calibrate them or turn off the soap opera effect either. You're right, it's all about priorities.

I will tell you I spent a few hundred bucks on some replacement speakers from crutchfields clearance sale for my home theater about 3 years ago and I was floored by the difference. It was like the audio equivalent of the first time you saw a DVD. It pains me to side with chud, but a little investment goes a long way when it comes to sound.

Absolutely. Totally worth it. I have now spent too much money on my sound system at home. Too much yet not enough.

and a nice pair of cans

To be fair, most people who do buy what they perceive to be "great" sound systems get presence-boosting, EQ twisting gear that doesn't reveal a tenth the humanity and delicacy hidden in a good record that a great pair of monitor headphones does.

I'll take well constructed flat response phones over a sound system any day of the week, and twice on Sunday.

I did some a/b comparison and it's wild how much smoother the sound is.

A neat little detail I never noticed in Gone - transitioning into one of the choruses (the second, i think) when eddie sings 'this time...) there is a whispered echo repeating it back underneath. Very subtle detail that was totally cool to discover.

I just can't imagine having a collection of songs that are performed and captured this well, and being incurious or unmotivated or SOMEthing enough to both let them get mastered into sounding like garbage and also making the album art every possible argument for hesitation in buying.

the only thing i can imagine is when S/T was released in 2006, we were right in the middle of the explosion of iPods and portable MP3 players. people were beginning to experience music differently, with tiny, shitty headphones. and no one knew wtf they were doing. MAYBE they were trying to make this sound good through small headphones?

i doubt that much thought was put into it, and it was just arbitrarily mastered how it was mastered. i dunno.

there's no excuse for the cover art though. that was just lazy. or, they were just trying to be funny. any of the inner art would have been better.

I just heard a song by that band from my youth. I gave up on them because they got all weird, but maybe I should check out this new one oh look at that an avocado png over an MS Paint backdrop hard pass

So is it Adam Kasper's fault for the initial mixing, or the person uncredited for the master (Bob Ludwig?).
