Why do some CD's sound so much better than others??
Ok, as you can probably tell, I'm a relative newbie to HiFi, and I have my system in an interim stage with my Sonos ZP100 feeding my Q Acoustics 1010s. Now, I know this is not the greatest setup in the world, but I have a question.
Why do some cds of the same genre so sound great, and some pretty awful?
For example, I was listening to Guns and Roses' Appetite for Destruction, and it sounded pretty mediocre and somehwat 'muffled' with not very good bass or treble. I then decided put on AC/DC's Back in Black, and it sounded fantastic. Now for me this is odd, because the music type is pretty similar (Hard Rock). Is this due to the production of the actual CD or due to my kit. (Both of these CD's have been ripped in lossless format recently.)
If it is the cd then I'd be really interested to hear other peoples experiences with high profile albums that simplly did not cut the mustard when it comes to their recording / production.
