A HIGH IQ INSIGHT INTO AUDIO SYSTEMS

Be a Beacon
of Beaudacity
  1. Music, like love, is an emotion that can’t be measured

  2. Music consciounsess/hearing is constantly evolving if you pay attention to it.

  3. All audio systems are chaos systems, and no one has ever measured the quality of a musical signal passing through an audio system.

  4. A state of the art audio system is one that pushes all your right buttons and induces a state of musical ecstasy...and out of body, yet common experience.

  5. There is no such thing as "flat’ frequency response

  6. Static noise distortion measurement has no relationship to music
  7. No one has a clue about what is in a CD or record

  8. All audio systems are musical instruments and have their own personality

  9. There is no such thing as an "uncolored" audio system

  10. Speakers are the weakest link in the audio chain

  11. Speakers electrical characteristics change as they play music

  12. It is impossible to separate the electrical interdependence of speakers and amplifiers
  13. There is a "right" and "wrong" type of speakers for tube amplifiers, and most most get it wrong.
  14. The reason that speaker manufacturers never talk about speaker magnets is because they are the weakest element
  15. Your room acoustics modifies your audio system
  16. Listening values are culturally determined
  17. You spend thousands of dollars on electronics and it is all being fed into speaker crossovers that are made with $5 parts.
