High fidelity (often shortened to hi-fi or HiFi) is a term used by listeners, audiophiles and home audio enthusiasts to refer to high-quality reproduction of sound.

(by Wikipedia)

Reproduction of the sound as recorded. That recording involves many layers of mixes, filters, and even performances. Even a recording of a live performance depends on mixing many channels into two (or a few more if you are fancy).

What do you think ?

Probably best to master both, and know where and when to focus your attention.
