      ^^ My guess is the sort of thing like brightness as opposed to sounding dull on top.

        It all depends on how egregious the fault is rather than the cause. Either can be annoying to unlistenable.

            Let’s think about a few examples of each.

            Commission

            Addition of noise=loss of transparency
            Upper midrange brightness
            Humped up bass
            Graininess
            Non-linearities
            Flat images


            Omission

            Loss of ambient space
            Reduced low level resolution
            Rolled off extremes
            Missing harmonic overtones
            Small soundstage
            Loss of Micro or macrodynamics

                for example, I can listen to rolled off bass, but not boosted bass.

              "B" gets my vote.

                I agree for Myles' examples, B. But I have had extremely annoying errors of omission. Like buying an opera box set or a multirecord album and one of the records is missing. Or on a tape where the tape runs out in the middle of a song or movement, or a used tape which is blank. All have happened to me more than once. Much better to have a record set with an extra record (happened to me at least once).
