Yes. thumbsup

Deciding which flaws to fix and which can be left is definitely part of the job. You can't do that if you can't hear them.

If good monitors reveal a flaw, there will always be some end user systems that also reveal that same particular flaw (even while they may hide other flaws). You need to leave only those flaws that won't detract from (or undermine) the artistic intent or "message" of the piece. If you can't make these judgements (for whatever reason) then you cannot do the work justice.
