Brute force indeed...

Now there is something else to consider. Using this method of course 
makes complete fools of those listeners who have spent k$ on e.g.
speakers with a good transient resonse, or the recording engineers
who are using expensive mics for the same reason. In other words,
this really kills whatever snappy transient response you may have
had. And in some cases you *can* hear it quite clearly. Like
everything else in the loudness wars, it kills quality,
