More than a clear sound
For me the most important prerequisite for a clear sound is a clean record. Incredible as it may seem, the record, cleaned with SYNTH2ON, retains not only its music, but itself, its physical structure. Speaking about sound - I want it to be material, solid, saturated. I expect to hear additional overtones, dynamics, and low-frequency vibrations. What I don’t want to hear is nois and distortion.
