Default Comparison Of Music Between Mediums?

Do you notice any change in quality with music between different mediums? (e.g. movies, tv, video games, commercials, radio, internet, toys, elevator music etc.)

Are you talking about the sound quality of the music or the genre quality. If you are talking about the sound quality, its going to depend on the quality of the sound producing equipment. The sound equipment used in an elevator sucks compared to a theater.

There's definitely a drop in quality between a CD and an MP3 ripped from it. The file compression loses a lot. The trade off is the convenience of being able to carry hundreds of hours of music the the palm of you hand.

Movies sometimes have big orchestral type music that I don't hear on the radio.

Commercials are particularly loud. From my understanding they add a lot of compression so it sounds louder, when the adds come on. Very annoying!

All of that is true but the FCC allows the TV Commercials to be up to 20 db louder than the program. I find it damned annoying. The compression is used so everything is loud as hell but so they don't violate the 20 db rule.
