At the risk of sounding like a hipster- how important is sound and picture quality to you? How do you feel when listening to music or watching a movie with low quality? Why? What about movies/music recorded in low quality for artistic effect?
I'm pretty picky when it comes to video and sound quality. For example, I play Wii games on an emulator on my computer instead of on my TV because of the massive difference in resolution. I feel like I'm missing something when I watch a new movie on DVD instead of the Blu-Ray version, too. I think we're spoiled by all of the high-quality media that's out there now; it's so crisp and clean that it kinda makes it hard to go back to the lower-quality stuff. Something about the fuzz of VHS-quality video and low-fi sound sure does stir up nostalgia, though; watching Jurassic Park on Blu-Ray just ain't the same as rewinding a VHS copy for the first time in ten years and popping it in a dusty old VCR.
