Well, that's mostly because 85% of modern society has had their hearing destroyed by crappy earbuds, or those God-awful "Beats" headphones. "Ugh!" And they also could care less about using high quality home gear when listening. So they wouldn't even have a clue what "true audio fidelity" means! Oh well, sucks to be them! Because if you ask ME, 80's CDs are where it's at!
