This is actually true if we talking about qualities of the sound, not percieved quality. Those qualities can be preserved fully with loseless compression or partially with lossy ones. Whether those qualities sums up into objective quality of sound or not, is completely another matter.

Like with other media like tape or vinyl recordings which degrade sound quality just by their nature - you can love or hate them. But their qualities can be also preserved more or less faithfully with different compression methods.

I suppose that Paulas 'dirt' can interfere with psychoacoustic alghoritms of lossy compression so it can in fact degrade even further already degraded sound. There is a lot happening in those frequencies that coming out of Amiga -> [ Show youtube player ]
