I have decided to reboot my mind about the whole "fidelity" thang.
First off, if we are to speak of "fidelity" (as in the classic sense, meaning to be "faithful and loyal" to something), well, then exactly what the hell is it unto which we want to be "faithful and loyal"?

...To the sound of a given instrument in a given room?

...Or to the vision of the artist within the context of the work?

Sometimes it's the same thing, and sometimes it's not.
