  1. Whenever I record audio from Youtube or Spotify, The recording normally sounds thin and without body. I look at the frequency spectrum in Har-Bal, and there is a pronounced dip in the frequency at around 460hz and nearby frequencies. I record using Audacity at 24/176.4, I have not tried to record at 16/44.1 yet, but I don't think it would make any difference, it happens no matter what website I go to. I have used Sound Forge as well, the same dip. Of course, I can correct for that dip in Har-Bal, but I am not going to know what the original frequency spectrum is, so I have to do the best I can. I normally download classical or jazz music either at DSD or high-res PCM on Youtube. The songs themselves sound fantastic when I finish recording, very little noise, but again, they sound relatively hollow and thin. Do other people experience the same thing? Is there any way to correct for that, stop it from happening? Maybe it is the built-in sound card?! Thanks to all, I am new to downloading from websites, but not to being an audiophile.
