Just the other day I found some classical recordings I have on my 
computer (piano works by Chopin, orchestral compositions by Bach, etc), 
and listened to them on my new Alesis M1 active monitors.

I found that my appreciation of the recording increased immensely. (With 
decent speakers you notice that) well-recorded music with natural 
dynamics is just so much more *alive*.

Don't get me wrong - I can appreciate the value of some good loud rock, 
or some nice hypnotic beats, but too many producers (and mastering 
engineers...) compress the life out of music.
