I only really discovered the loudness war fairly recently. I indeed had been exposed to it in a form or another but wasn't realizing it. It's when I started to see heaviliy brickwalled waveforms by myself (and that famous video) that I became fully aware of it. I was even falling into the "louder is better" trap at times. And now I'm finding myself "remastering" or "restoring" songs on albums I liked and picking only the most dynamic master possible when I look for a song in particular.
I personally consider the loudness war as an aberration now, even if I definitely don't consider myself as an audiophile.
I listen almost to all kinds of music but have a preference for 80s electropop.
I also make FM-synthesized music when I have the "courage" to do so.
I'm not sure you'll see really interesting info from me but I'll post from to time to time when I consider worth it.
