what good are dynamics when everyone is just carrying around an iPod? I have some expensive, large (by today's standards)speakers sitting unused in the corner. My girls (including my wife) don't even notice the difference. And women are supposed to hear better than us guys. Audio seems to have gone backwards. My wife bought a 2007 Toyota Rav4 with mp3 port in it and I swear, it is the worst car stereo system I have ever heard, bar none. I can't hear anything but cymbals and pumped up, rattling bass, and nothing in between coming out of it. They all think it's fine.
