I guess this is where this whole discussion so far has left me confused.
There certainly could be 2, or 3, or more CDs (or LPs) released. The
question is how does a consumer know which one to purchase? Does he/she
purchase only for headphones? Do they purchase for bad living rooms? Great

buy the wrong one, or want to listen in both environments. (Since I seem to

None of the above is a statement about the underlying technology. While I
don't understand how the above scenario can ever work with the end consumer,
I can certainly see the value of being able to use it, either on the overall
mix or on a given instrument at a given time.
