RE: Why stop @ the CD when we can degauss ourselves as well?...

So, somebody 'programmed' the CD to sound better after degaussing even without understanding WHY or HOW such a thing could or would work?

And while I will totally admit that many things ONCE beyond the ken of man are now understood and understood well, as yet I have heard NO theoretical framework for such a thing to happen to a CD /DVD / BR.

And yes, I suppose so. In the world I worked in for 30+ years, we believed in Cause and Effect.
The effect NEVER preceeded the Cause. NEVER. But when something broke or didn't work to plan, we didn't have a seance, or Hope it got better or anything else. We always tried to get to first cause. The engineers I worked for when in R+D were always happy to entertain a theory of what was going wrong. Sometimes we were able to fix it. Sometimes the fix was down another avenue. But there was ALWAYS some kind of reason. We could repeat the error by 'unfixing' the process or machine.

Other than your 'perception of insult', did I actually insult you or did I just wound your belief system?
Too much is never enough
