We feel that perhaps the biggest downside to the internet is the quality of the music found on it. Wait! We’re not making a controversial statement that all new music is rubbish, simply suggesting that it sounds terrible. As in, it literally doesn’t sound as good as it could do, not because of the abilities of the musicians but simply because of the dreaded bitrate and compression.
Digital files take up space. That is a simple fact. The better the audio track, the larger the file. A CD can store around 650 mb of Audio information on it, enough to provide a good listening experience, including plenty of highs and lows. For music downloaded from the internet and stored on mp3 players, however, space is at a premium and the first place that it is saved is from the higher and lower frequencies. Music that is compressed, that has the highs and lows that fill out the sound cruelly chopped away can never sound as warm and wonderful as that which has space to breath. There are many out there who still enjoy the analogue warmth of Vinyl, but the rest of us need to draw a line in the sand and refuse to sacrifice quantity for quality. You are never going to listen to the 15,000 songs on your iPod (other brands are of course available), why not settle for 1,500 in glorious high fidelity? NB
