Without a doubt, the single biggest issue is the actual recording/mastering process, there are good, even great recordings but sadly there seems to be more mediocre/bad recordings than of the good/great.

I have been re-ripping a number of my old CD's and then trying them out on the Axioms and I have sadly rediscovered why I don't listen to many of them anymore.
