To have a luxury of choosing five SOTA Trumpets from the masters is very nice indeed but assume that you're only able to get DDR quality tin crap trumpet made in Soviet republic and have no exposure whatsoever? Where that "inspiration' inside of you takes you ? This is reality of an average audio crowd. They are not so moronic or deaf actually. |
Funny enough, the west block orchestras did not make „better“ music than the east, in spite of „better“ instruments. The reason is clear - the musician makes the music, even the „lesser“ instruments are still „good enough“ in the parameters that count. I believe that this is also true for playback. We do not need the „best“ hardware for the „best playback“. The hardware has to be „good enough“ and in the hands of someone who makes it sing.
If we start to analyse the finest playbacks, what do we learn? Higher distortion in SET? uneven polar response? Inconvenient to use? Ugly?I think not. I think that we learn that there is too much that we do not understand and that technical argumentation from audiophiles has NOTHING to do with Sound. That is the problem with this thread - more hardware than common sense.
