Just thought I'd seek others' views regarding the above issue which I've been wondering about for ages. I listen to a lot of hardhouse and trance dance music which is, other than vocals, exclusively produced electronically. When I've been demoing kit and when I've spoken to a number of different hi fi stores (decent ones I hasten to add), a lot of people have said 'It's not worth playing it through decent hi fi as it has no 'real' soundstage and is simply replaying computerised sounds'. Although I realise certain music will bring out the best in hi fi and although we all know radio stations like Radio 1 sound worse due to the compression used, is it not still the case that it IS worth buying decent kit even if you're going to listen to music that, potentially, was made on a cheap PC? On the opposite side of the arguement, I've also read that certain dance music CDs actually show off frequencies that 'normal' music generally don't tend too. The CD I've heard referred to most in this respect is The Prodigy's 'Fat of the Land'. I've also read that this CD makes an awesome burn in disc. What do you guys think?
