fair enough. I haven't heard a new, bad pressing in that regard and thought to myself that it's because of the medium, I'd probably have just chalked it up to the master not being right enough. On another note I do think certains sounds could suit digital more than vinyl or cassette etc and vice versa
I've had some debates on this specific issue before with some high profile audiophiles (pbthal). Engineering trickery!... give me all of that please, if something sounds preferable to me and it just happens to be an engineer's tweak, then let that man tweak the shit out of my music please lol. Because at the end of the day, that's what it's about, whatever you yourself can enjoy more. Y'all can try for a consensual flat sound but it'd be weird to think that whatever the consensus.. or the percerption of consensus likes, you must like aswell. The difference between a fake better sound and a true better sound doesn't matter to me. If it's preferred, then it's preferred.
Now, as you may know, on the other hand there is the shallow listener who thinks brighter = more details = better... and this is a thought process that has rendered many reissues, including from the likes of MFSL, ear ache inducing. What can I say though, their opinion is their opinion :/
look up the difference between mass nouns and count nouns and it should save you from your suicide. Vinyl is in the catagory of both mass and count nouns, like cheese, beer, wine, rubber etc. That ol complaint is just an excuse for smug music nerds to be pedantic bitches
