Do you spend more time analyzing the sound of your system, worrying it could be better?


Great article here from Dan Wright of ModWright:

If it Sounds Good, It IS Good

I have now reached the age where upgrading components leads to minimum sound satisfaction. In other words my ears  don't always hear much improvement in sound quality so I am not getting value for money and there are always other avenues for my cash.

I wish i could explain myself so clearly and with few words as you...

This hobby is about " plurality" yes, (not universal perfection, with a universal recipe, and some universally good gear) because of the acoustic specificity of any content in a room , of any gear and of any particular ears... And it is about fun learning of acoustic or /and electronical design yes...

Music was fun all along....From my few bucks battery radio at 13 years old till my system/room now...

Thanks to say it so eloquently...

In other words, the challenge of upgrade-itis isn’t about material after all; it’s about a dogmatic and myopic idea -- that "perfection" is singular and final. If perfection is about plurality and change, the "disease" of audiophiles goes right away, with the hobby left intact.

 

Not lately.

It must sound REAL good!

But I only got here because I did obsess over sound for a couple of years on this particular house of stereo system of mine. It was all worth it. I have to say my listening sessions are much more satisfying now that I don't spend anymore time analizing every sound that comes out of my system. Plus I don't have to listen to the same couple dozen reference albums over and over. In fact I hardly ever listen to them anymore because I can't enjoy their music anymore. Overload. Sound obsession ruined them for me. So I listen to thousands of others 😇
