For the sake of convenience, why are are we skimping on audio quality?
‘The Distortion of Sound’ is a documentary produced by Harman, the American audio equipment company and the official description is given below.

This documentary will open your ears and inspire you to reach for richer, more soul-stirring musical experiences.
This 22 minute documentary featuring Mike Shinoda, Steve Aoki, A R Rahman Hans Zimmer and other musicians, composers and engineers reflects on the decline of sound quality and how technology has changed the way we listen to music.
