Audio mastering glues an album together. When done correctly, there's no need to adjust your playback volume or EQ from song to song. A properly mastered record will translate well to any system -- regardless if using small earbuds or large speakers..
It's important to me that all my masters engage the listener so that they want to listen again and again, hearing something new each time, on any system whether it's streamed or played on vinyl.
