At 33/3 you can have around 25 mins of music per side
Whereas 45s normally have around 11 mins max per side even though they can accommodate more.

Most dance music tracks don't need the whole 25 mins of a 33/3 so they use 45 and spread the song across the whole side. - thus the greater space = greater quality like you said in your post.

Even if you can't actually tell the difference with your own ears, the science behind it all suggests otherwise.

Cool...makes sense, just wasn't picturing it right.

How come more 12" dance singles aren't 45 RPM then? I can safely say, of the 5-6 crates of singles I have, there's easily way more 33's tha 45's...probably a 70/30 ratio, at a guess.
