Does the Orchestra sound better in a Music Hall than at Home?

Does the Orchestra sound better in a Music Hall? It is really an age old question. We have had, through recording history, vinyl and CD. Slowly as technology improves we find the speakers get better. The cables used to run the music from input to output are created with better material. The data size and it´s transmission has  improved. We now find ourselves in the year 2019. Music halls are being built with better architectural technology and acoustic specific material. Most recordings you listen to at home are recording in these wonderful halls. They are often in front of a live audience. 

Music at Home

100 years ago radios began their popularity in most households. Our pioneer age of music distribution began. We changed formats almost a dozen times. From eight-tracks to cassettes; CDs; DVDs and now streaming technology such as Spotify and Youtube. The last decade or so saw a boom in faster and more compact music distribution. This market disruptor saw many new companies and formats go in and out of business after the turn of the decade. It didn´t come without its consequences however. It stunted the growth of music quality in the distribution phase. Does the orchestra sound better in a music hall?

 Today we find ourselves mostly streaming music. Save for those audiophiles who know what streamers are missing. Music quality in most peoples homes leaves space for improvement. This is where high definition and surround sound music comes into play. Music on a dedicated blu-ray disc in high fedility. This is great for those fans of a certain artist or genre. You always want to hear your favorite music in the best quality. How do we find ourselves duplicating the orchestra in a music hall?

Though the orchestra sounds great in a music hall these recordings on Pure Audio Blu-ray are great reproductions of the real thing. Far above what one might listen to on CD. From the dynamics of surround sound to further replicate a music hall to the high definition of the sampling rate. One could say once you go Pure Audio you might not go back.
