The Loss of Quality

One of the things which has happened over my lifetime is a loss of quality:
  1. in music.  Used to be we had audiophiles who spent thousands on their amplifiers and tuners, their speakers and turntables.
  2. in photography.  Used to be we had photo buffs who spend thousands on their camera, and meters and lenses, and filters.  Then we had digitial photography, with the arms race in the sensors.
Now we have smart phones which take good-enough pictures and which produce good enough sound.
