    Yes, true audiophiles only listen to vinyl, of course stored in, and played from, a clean room to prevent any dust particles from causing any noise.

    thats a myth though. a clean cd-ripped mp3 at 320kbs is virtually indistinguishable from a cd-ripped flac or pcm file. all that dsp software does is further manipulate the original sound, and accuracy is the name of the game when you have amps and speakers that are capable of producing the sound correctly.

    if you dont have subwoofers, then programs like 'enhancer' can help because they can artificially add the lower sounds, but if you arent getting your highs like you want then you should look into better speakers and amps... and if youre going to do that, you might as well add a sub too.

    i can assure you that sound system isnt very high quality. it might sound cool, but its not accurate. of course, its better then most factory solutions, but if you ever decide to put in a custom system you wouldnt believe the capability of real hardware. my buddy's vehicle came with an factory optional 'bose' soundsystem that he swears is amazing, and i havent told him but i think it sounds borderline awful.

    cd format forever. from all the trials and formal tests ive seen, vinyl records really ARE NOT any better then cd's. and of course forget it once one speck of dust gets on there...

    Listen to your music louder... problem solved. Your ears will degrade and you will not be able to distinguish the minor attenuation on the various frequencies.

    Jeeze. I should have expected enforcer to have a reference .
    Personal experience, when I compare a flac file to an mp3 on my mid to high end system it is night and day. Crisper highs and much cleaner bass. That's just me though.

    i do agree, but the only stereos that i can tell the difference on are mine... on any premade boombox, factory car system or home theater in a box you just cant notice the difference. also, you if set up your own lame encoder to 320kbs constant bitrate you can get flac-like results. but when you buy from amazon or download from grey sources, they always encode to save space over keeping the quality up.

    been listening to loud heavy metal for over 10 years now... and work construction. people keep telling me hearing loss is cumulative but i dont have anything significant yet. i think your ears have ways of adjusting to prolong excessive noise, up to a certain range of decibles of course. my rule of thumb is, if it makes you shutter a little bit, its too loud. otherwise, rock on.
