If you don't want to have the exactly the same sound they have in recording studio (magnetic resistors , cheap op amps and electrolytic coupling caps ) , you use better components and they add slightly better flavour, because nothing is really neutral. It doesn't matter what they use to make a recording. At home, your equipment will always have a sound of its own and you tailor it to your taste. It's just that better recordings will sound better

If you don't care much, you use "magnetic resistors , cheap op amps and electrolytic coupling caps " at home too. If your taste is more refined, you might use "teflon insulated pure silver wire, silvermica caps, pure gold relais contacts and so on.."

btw, aren't you worried about skin effect on these resistors? i mean people get all worked up about skin effect on wire killing their highs and this seems to be a lot of wire.

Hmmm....Soundengineers???

Aren't those the people that went to school for years in a row so they'd learn to think up every conceivable way to mess up a nice sounding recording?

It seems some do but then you won't actually buy those recordings, or would you?

Cheer up Bernhard, there are more well recorded records out there than you'll ever be able to afford, regardless of your taste in music.

Errr...great post Peter, LOL.

Cheers,
