I prefer the latter.

Those flecks of shapes and light at the edges are important to me, and I have no interest whatsoever in mixing in service of the race to the bottom of consumer listening devices. Translation is important but I'm not going to skip out on the details just because some or even most people listen with basic stuff. That's tantamount to shooting a film in lossy 1080p because it'll end up being streamed.
Oh I agree, my own work is my vision of perfection, I wouldnt except anything less from myself.

I just know from experience it's lost on all but the few!

But that doesn't negate my desire to pursue perfection, I just see the irony in it all when my wife listens to all her favourite music on her mono Alexa
