You can edit your post to undupe it or emphasize the non-dupe part and how it's not duped. Also we can consider merging the answers one way or the other.

Your first paragraph is reminiscent (not perfectly parallel, I agree) to the Noda' Bihuda's responsum showing why hunting for sport isn't Tzaar Baalei Chayim.

Baal Tashchis may not be the only concern. What about Hezek or communal policies? There are rules in Nezikin-world about polluting the community well or taking too much water from the river before it runs downstream to someone else's field.

Isn't your second paragraph "relying on a miracle" to some extent?

comment Sefardim don't ever listen to live music?
@Shokhet Right. If it's not the original live sound, then it's a live instrument playing something that sounds remarkably like live sounds.

comment Sefardim don't ever listen to live music?
@Shokhet No because you didn't write @DoubleAA. I don't understand your point of it though. Either it's an instrument, or it accurately replicates instruments.

"listening 'specifically for the sake of sexual pleasure' or listening to explicitly 'lewd songs' and 'erotic conten'" is forbidden whether it is a man, woman or machine singing.

comment What is the difference between a Sephardic and Ashkenaz eruv?
Seems the Rama doesn't argue. What makes you think it's a Sefardi/Ashkenazi thing?

@Shokhet Sure they do. It talks about "instruments". Isn't that what a speaker is?

@Jake And all of us are crazy to some degree. What you didn't account for is someone being Liberal without cognitive dissonance because you can't even see such an option.

comment Orthodox Judaism and American conservatism
Summary: Objectively, Orthodox Jews are Repulican because to be Democratic and Orthodox means you are crazy. (I'm just waiting for another answer to come along and say the exact opposite.)

comment Orthodox Judaism and American conservatism
I tend to agree with @IsaacMoses and given that there are already 3 other close votes (so I'm not overly asserting my mod-powers), I'm putting this on hold for now. I think the above discussion should be moved to a Mi Yodeya Meta post where others can voice there positions in an organized fashion.
