Recently I have a very interesting conversation regarding
the way how a person can be introduced to “better” audio. There is no need to
advocate to the readers of this forum that different quality of sound reproduction
might directly affect listening experience. However many people do not have own
experience with this connection between sound quality and listening benefits.
So, the conversation I was involved was about the more effective way to introduce
an uninformed person to this connection. The argument was poled around two main
direction: Education vs Magic.
Education: gradual introduction to a person ideas, concepts,
experiences, evidences…. etc.… until a person develops his sensitivity to the “connection”
and enable himself to get the magic of recorded performing events.
Magic: let person to experience that magical moment when
playback effort opens to a person a new listening opportunity and then to introduce
“education” from there.
