RE: Then maybe it's not a real upgrade

Or maybe the upgrade discovers what that original recording really was: overly compressed panned mono dreck meant for Aunt Myrtle's console or LLoyd's all- in- one.

Just maybe your pre-upgrade system was less resolving and put a nice burnished glow in the form of say, distortion on one more parts of the audio spectrum that made the aberration less pronounced.

There are irrefutable techniques in recording that have been good practice for almost 100 years that are largely ignored because of cost or misguided priorities. Some labels are consistently bad because they don't adhere to good principles and some are almost always winners based on the care that was taken.

We can always value the music outside of the resolution of our system's capabilities however, that's not what we're discussing here.
