Re: do remasters fit with the site's mission statement?

I voted yes because I think there is nothing black and white suggesting a remastered source is not better than a mastered source. The goal being to have the best source here.

There are certainly recordings that could be made better with remastering. I believe there are people that have remastering skills and techniques that are beneficial.

95% of what is remastered does not fit into this category. Most are a degradation of the master material in some form. How you monitor this? I don't know. It's probably easier and better to not allow them to prevent the flood of poor remasters.

I think discussions of people taking undue credit for their part is another topic all together.
