59. do I like what apple did to music

absolutely not and if you can't tell the difference in sound that is really to bad. I am old school and started to go to concerts in 1966 and i have been to about 200 concerts including every big act from the sixties with the exception of Hendrix which I had tix for but didn't go.

. I guess you are one who only wants one song so what do we have now. Really bad artist making really bad music called "hits". It used to be people tried to put out a body of work and people tried to buy albums in support of the music business. now we have crap. "hits" have by and large no soul to the music and this is best exemplified by country music which makes me puke.

Finally audio purists aren't the only ones who can tell. I can spend around $300- $400 on used equipment on ebay and have a darn good system. I recently bought a Harman Kardon 330b receiver for $50. A Harman Kardon FL 8400 CD player at goodwill for $30. and I already own a pair of Dynaco speakers for $100.for the pair and this sound would blow you away. you can get tons of excellent audio equipment on ebay for a pittance. Like many you have never been exposed to good sound. It takes a little work.I bought this system for my son. I own a first level of a hifi system worth about $3,000.

My son downloaded Who's next and I have a newly released copy of Who's next. He played it on my car stereo and he could not believe the difference in sound quality. my car stereo.

You may call it marketing but they changed things. Let me tell you a story. I once knew a guy who invented the "thomas flair" in gymnastics. My friend Lloyd Larsen invented it. Kurt Thomas was the first to use it in international competition. What do we call it today. it is the "thomas flair"
