Average internet radio/streaming mp3s, or terrestrial radio and it's processing/transmission? I bring this up cuz I keep thinking about one of my co workers always saying " ah it'll cut right thru on the radio" , which really reinforced the fact that playback medium is something engineers have always had to consider, and work around. I wonder if it will ever get to a point where people work at the same resolution as the final product. It really would be fun to be able to hear some classic mixes thru the systems the engineers were using, to hear it the exact way they did. Also, I've been thinking, why don't more speaker manufacturers put D/A converters in the speakers as part of their design and and have digital inputs. That way even regardless of what interface, as long as you had digital outs, which most do, the speakers themselves could help maintain a certain level of consistency. If conversion quality is so integral and varies so greatly wouldn't they want to minimize the variables as much as possible, to insure quality and consistency? Between shoddy cables, and bad interfaces, there is a lot of different quality levels that a speaker could see. I've been up too long lol.
