We need to learn more about capturing and reproducing the gestalt of music.

Again and again, as we rush to identify the reasons why the sound isn't better, engineers poke around for a fix and find solutions.

That's great, but it's the LP-vs-CD argument repeated ad infinitum. We're not really getting anywhere.

We still don't have hi-fis that can fool the ear into believing we're hearing a live violin or solo voice or rock band or orchestra.

Maybe it comes down to this: Making gear that's more accurate and/or measures better isn't the same as making better-sounding gear

Today's best gear can play louder, with lower distortion, and has wider bandwidth than the best of yesteryear's "Recommended Components." That's true, but a hi-rez file of a new recording can't match the bloody realism of a 1960 RCA Living Stereo LP played through a well-set-up turntable, 1980s-era electronics, and a pair of Quad ESL or Klipschorn speakers.

We must have missed some essential aspects of sound reproduction.

I have no idea what those aspects might be, but there has to be more to the pursuit of ultimate fidelity than eliminating or reducing imperfections.

We need to learn more about capturing and reproducing the gestalt of music.
