I'm back! Sorry I haven't posted the last 2 Sundays; I've been away on a glorious, wine-soaked vacation. I thought about logging-on, and at least posting that I wouldn't be able to post...but this surely would have caught the wrath of my wife, and so I thought better of it.
So, for this week's ramblings...I can across an interesting "post" (don't ask me how...it must have been a Google of something that included the word audiophile, lol) that I felt warranted commenting
So…chances are this is a pretty safe post, here; after all…we are in the warm embrace of the Computer Audiophile populous (although I know some forums, where this message would be met with great debate…and I might even invite a few of those “friends” here, so we’ll see if all stays quiet). But I just can’t get into the seeming resurgence of Vinyl playback.
Trust me…I’ve been tempted; and thought about it, a LOT. But because I’ve thought about it a lot, I know exactly why it just doesn’t
So...I've been working on a treatise, about why I just can't get into Vinyl. But it's been 2 Sundays now, and I can't bring it to a close (stay tuned, lol). So I thought a recent email to an "audiophile" friend, explored an interesting point...and would have to suffice as this week's reflection.
The more I really listen to a lot of gear...and think about the listening process; the more I'm convinced that what we hear really does get clouded by all kinds of mental factors.
I'm not one of those "audiophiles" that picks a particular set of good gear, and stands pat for 10, 15, or 20 years. I understand their argument; rather than constantly auditioning new kit, they are sitting back and enjoying music. However...how can you truly be satisfied with your system, if you're not entirely convinced you've got the "best" (sounding) one; respective to your budget of course. Sure...someday (and that day may not be far off) I'll settle-down with just the right
