A passive but elegant presentation
An interesting guy. I would love to discuss with him a few points, not that he prolamins anything (unfortunately) but I would certainly can bring some complex questions to the table that make his presentation more applied

Adorno for Dummies?
Nice monolog to kick off a Dialog. He certainly touched on a lot of important ideas, and we have certainly batted around a number of these questions at GSC. Also nice that he quoted Adorno! I recommend to all to immediately read Adorno's hypertext, "Aesthetic Theory"! Talk about an All Day Sucker!

I was hoping he would play the big horns!

My question
my question is:
the relation between "music listening experience" and "sound quality".
very good articles are here (GSC) and I have read them.

when I wake up early morning and start climbing at 5:30AM the music listening experience is wonderful even with $10 headphone.actually I think when I enjoy listening to music then it is not important how does it sound. High End is not fully isolated from music listening/enjoying but most of the time it's not very important.
I really like high end audio just because it is like a game for me and I do not think better sound is equal to better music experience.

One of the best questions asked in Audio.

Amir, this is such a loaded question and completely valid to think about. In fact, I feel any audio practicing people only after recognizing the answer question might become a self-worthy audio individual but not a continue to be of the audio industry slaves who lives in constant fear of disobedience.

Tragedy
The answer could be simple .to round it up fast it(sound quality) equals to any PROBLEMATIC FREE playback system. That said being problematic free is not easy for any playback system or what you call high end thats why a cheap headphone may pass the test .To be honest you were gamed pursuing high end ..Audio playback is just a tool.The tragedy is not finding what it is the sound you like.Regards

The initial exposure to something new in art (or people or xxx) that affects us powerfully emotionally has an intensity that inevitably dulls somewhat on repetition. This is called habituation. Then it can go one of two ways, either becoming "comfort food" or initiating an extended search for a way to relive or rediscover the magic. With respect to music it is well known that most people stop actively listening to a lot of new music once they get in their 30s. Only a small proportion continue to seek out new music which can give them the initial rush of excitement with a new experience, The rest just use the music they know as comforting background noise. So having better sonics is one way of reconnecting with known music as it makes it sound different (hopefully better). There is nothing ignoble about this. For example if we only knew certain art through grainy photos wouldn't we want to find a way to see them more clearly? Or if books were only known through garbled text wouldn't we want to find a copy where the text was closer to what was written?
