Do you really want all that old stereo stuff to be hard-panned like it was originally released? How about treble-panned fake stereo?
But, in conclusion (because the discussion gets a little too complicated for me, adding to the fact that I'm not fluent in english): Does a remaster sound more modern to the point where you hear it clearly in a normal music equipment? It's just that fact that would annoy me, because I don't need to be updated or something like this.
E.g. as I wrote UMG Rolling Stones 2009 remasters clearly sound much worse than Bob Ludwig's for Virgin/EMi at 1994.
Here's what the remaster of Focus/Moving waves/Hocus Pocus looks like compared to an early CD reissue.One of them sounds great - tape and compressor saturated loveliness - "warm sounding" Prog Rock record from 1972.The other sounds like a "modern" record/remaster; saturation buried under something nastier altogether.Guess which is which...
