Sound quality versus composition quality

February 3, 2007 6:58pm CST
Just wondering about classical/instrumental listeners out there - do you find listening to CDs and MP3 a huge difference? Many classical listeners I know go for hardcore stuff like big speakers, expensive CD player etc because apparently it brings the 'stage-like' quality into your room. However for me sometimes it's the compositional quality that matters - eg Bach's Well Tempered Clavier, even on reasonable speakers can bring the range of emotion out. What do you think?
