My experience as composer and CD editor/producer (all anecdotal of course) is 
the opposite, at least from the classical perspective: people who listen to 
and/or perform more live music (solos, chamber music, choirs, symphonies, etc.) 
prefer their recordings to have higher fidelity.

I myself have experienced a related effect: the longer I go without hearing 
live music, the less I appear to be bothered by the digital artifacts in modern
