You might argue sound quality makes no difference at all if we were experiencing unprecedented sales of recordings. People are quick to blame everything under the sun while almost nobody is willing to come out and say that maybe, just maybe most new records aren't good enough to inspire people to buy them.

The bar for quality that inspires sales could simply be much higher than it was decades ago yet the willingness to invest in quality recordings seems at an all time low. I don't claim to know what is needed but I seriously suspect that making a record on the cheap probably isn't the answer to sagging sales.
