Yesterday’s post about high-end bikes and stereo systems got a few people talking and asking if you really need to spend so much on the system to get high-performance music from it.
No, you don’t. You simply need to connect with designers and company’s who infuse passion into their designs. It shows, or should I say “sounds” when they do.
Recently a friend gave me a pair of self-designed speakers that were perfectly flat and measured great. They did not sound like music. I tweaked the response such that they did – and he was amazed at how they then sounded.
“What equipment did you use to measure them?” Nothing but my ears.
“Are they flat?” I haven’t any idea.
I could listen and enjoy music on them for hours.
Do you want to stroke a meter or uncover the passion locked away in your music? That’s what it’s all about and whatever that costs is worth it.
