    The most vexing issue that could be considered a bottleneck time and again, for me, has got to be room acoustics.

          Lol love the comments. Reg recordings while I can agree on bad I wonder how many are and how many simply can’t be reproduced in some systems. .

            Seems to me the really great recordings can sound good played over most any system. The great recordings transcend audio systems.

            I agree most all great do transcend to most systems but my point was to be able to achieve scale or level of dynamics one would a system to accommodate it.
            back when I used headphones mostly it was the same. I needed a headphone / amp to be able to show how far it would go.

              Scale or dynamics may or may not be a desire for some. Some may like small accurate speakers. An intimate playback. Smooth clean and relaxing.

                      Having done a few on location recordings what comes up for me is the recording technology itself. A direct microphone feed can be Spooky! But any recording of it and the Spooky! bit is lost.
