many of them I have objective reasons for thinking are pretty good. When I began noticing the problem, I attributed it to the engineering of individual discs, but it manifests itself across many labels, time periods, ADD vs DDD, etc.
By any chance could you have tinnitus?
I have mild tinnitus, but it doesn't flare up with most treble sounds played on my stereo nor do I experience harshness when listening to a live orchestra playing high passages.
I have mild tinnitus, too, and if it flares up, it's ALWAYS triggered by recordings of high strings, even a string quartet. Other high-pitched sounds don't trigger it, nor does an orchestra or a quartet in live performance.
