RE: Searching for truth?

"the removal of particular sound corruption/ distortion only serves to reveal another previously hidden sound defect ad infinitum. The next defect may get smaller but the hearing adapts and becomes more acute:-)"

Truish, but I believe that there really are limits to both hearing acuity and levels of concern. At some energy level you simply don't hear things anymore. On the other hand it can be pretty easy to introduce different ilks of noise and distortion in the process of "fixing" extant ones so that makes things trickier...

"The only area where the cascading genius of noise appears to show some humility and limits is in the CD ripping process on which I spent a couple of years."

Isn't that sweet? That's the primary reason for digital. Encoding to symbols rather than energy levels is a huge advantage.
