What's better, live or recorded?
All I can say about it is that when we hear music naturally presented, we feel most connected it, and when we feel most connected to it, we feel a certain type of enjoyment. You get this at a live performance, but at home . . . maybe even better.
Yes, I'll go out on a limb and say that listening to recordings can be even better than live performances. I think this is because having privacy lets you relax more and thus be more open to making that musical connection. Another reason is that the sound at a concert can be pretty screwed up.
No matter what kind of music, or how quiet or loud, you'll never tire of hearing its deepest meaning, and never tire of the sound itself. JansZen speakers deliver a magical experience every time you sit down to listen.
