Re: sound systems (posted by Patrick May, 9 Oct 2018, 16:12)

I've noticed something similar. I bought a cheap mp3 player and I noticed that the sound quality sounded pretty thin and was lacking in bass, even while I was using my good quality Koss Portapro headphones. But I haven't noticed any sound quality problems with better quality mp3 players, or my laptop (as long as I'm listening through good headphones of course. Laptop speakers never sound good)

Sounding off (posted by Daniel Rowe, 27 Aug 2018, 18:47)

I encourage visitors here to listen to the sound files on a good computer and sound system. Smart phones, laptops, etc. are great, but they just don't reproduce the sound as the composer or arranger intended. I listened to a number of tunes here on my new cell phone, and it was slightly depressing. Even piano sounds too "electronic" to my ears.
