Not really. But since sound sources stimulate both the recording
and the listening environment, it's impossible to go fully either
one way (totally clean recording) or the other (record in an
"exciting" environment and then reproduce that in a clean one).
But I agree, people *do* want to hear the music interact with
their own listening room, and feel their floor and windows shake :-).
I don't take that to mean that the speakers etc *should* be "impure"
Roy's comment about flat amplitude response is telling. Most speakers,
especially cheaper ones, have enormous (>20db) peaks and troughs in
their responses. The new drivers in my AL's are definitely flatter
than the originals.
Thanks folks, interesting discussion.
