While it may be overkill, as an engineer, I like the idea of capturing the reproducing the highest quality that can done.
Its like owning a mechanical watch. Sure I have a phone that syncs to a time source so its accurate enough, but to think about what it takes to design and build a watch with 500 moving parts and fits on your wrist? Now that's a combination of art and function that I can appreciate.
Is there something wrong in striving to do the best you can do or have we become a society of where 'good enough' is the best we can do?
