If you want "awesome hi-fi audio" take it to the broadcast bands. 
Amateur radio is a communications service where "communications 
quality" not hi-fi is the standard.  Six and ten KHz response  
voice signals are like excrement in a punch bowl.  Those who 
produce such should be banned from polite company - and banished 
to some microwave band where there are 10s of MHz for them to 

Non-contesters may view contesters' exchanges (and DX exchanges) 
as devoid of content but the competition to work the farthest 
or the greatest number of stations goes back to the very first 
amateur radio activities (before even traffic handling, etc.).
