Mike every instrument and record with every channel turned up to 11, remove all mid-level and midrange sounds, compress the $(&* out of it to MP3. Stream that over a lossy protocol and then compress and stream that over lossy bluetooth to a final analog stage designed in ignorance of the past 100 years of analog design. Play through tinny piezoelectric monaural speakers which peak at the now-removed midrange frequencies. Yes, we’ve finally downgraded HiFi audio to what it was in 1960. Should we be surprised vinyl is making a comeback?
