    While this is essentially true regarding the music companies, I don't think that is the intent of most artists.

      Do you really think the artists have any say in the matter?

        Myles - Yes I do. There are a few music companies out there started by non-mainstream artists or genre specific enthusiasts that are frozen out by mainstream companies. They have control of their music. Other similar artists are attracted to these labels for access to distribution and shared publicity.

          But I think that is the exception to the rule, not the rule. You have Hitmaker, etc. to get past nowadays.

            Hitmaker, with their heads firmly stuck up the a$$ of the past and blind to the future.

                Pharoah - Any technique taken to an extreme, including compression, is an exaggeration.

                Didn't Motown try to ensure listenability, if not optimize, for the car? Same thing at play here I guess...

                  I guess I'm always at a loss as to why great sound and great music have to mutually exclusive. After all, recording and music are both arts and why shouldn't we have the best of both? Why does everything have to be reduced to the least common denominator?

                  Some of the greatest recording artists received mediocre sound from their labels; yet others major artists received amazing sound. Heifetz, Britten, Coltrane, and a few other artists were treated well. So it can be done. Yet others like Rubinstein (and his ego) demanded being recorded up close, front and center, even to the point of distortion, because he felt people bought the records to hear him!

                    It's true and good too. Apple spearheaded "Mastered for iTunes". The number one guideline is to use less stereo buss compression since the files are meant to be listened to through earbuds and phones now that the iPod is essentially dead. Should the trend extend outside of MP3s et al, we just might be living in the times where head-fi saves hi-fi.

                      Interesting point Jack. I wonder with the recent onslaught of many high Rez portable digital players (that are all over the place in digital playback capability) how well they are selling?

                        I'm seeing some Astels around so that should be an indication that its become somewhat of a popular toy for guys my age at least. As for mass market penetration, I don't think there is much there. The Head-fi people I come across appear to like using Samsung phones primarily because of the expandability of SD slots. Most popular format is FLAC.
