How to build the best audio payback

I sometime try to address broad and purely abstractive audio issues, still without a big hope then it would be properly understood or properly interpreted by most of the readers, not to mention anyone else. An average audio person do not need a broad-spectrum thinking – he needs somebody tell him what to buy, how much to pay less then somebody else and how to built around himself as community of idiots who  would never tell him that his listing room sounds horrible. You do not believe me? Look around yourself.

Today, I would like to talk how for an average person to build a phenomenal audio payback. Ironically the recipe is very simple.

To conceptualize the approach I state that in order to build the best audio payback a person should have three absolutely obligatory ingredients:

1) A source of random incoming music.
2) A preservation mechanism that would allow recording the random incoming music.
3) A developed and exercised pattern to evolve into the consumed musical experiences

Let talk bout each ingredient:

A source of random incoming music – this could be anything for instance: local FM of XM radio station, personal acquaint who guides and advice about a musical material, shopping habits, local philharmonics, societies and neighboring classical musical activities, a combination of all of them. From my perspective the most valuable and priceless in the above mention might be a good local FM classical station. Where else you might anciently stumble upon the stunning Rachel Galinne’s "Uneginotai Nenagen" or to the 250 hours orgy over most Mozart’s compositions (coming in May on WHRB).

A preservation mechanism that would allow recording the random incoming music: this is very important as this basically allow preserving the event and then reinstating it. The audio quality of the recording is not really relevant as the preservation mechanism present YOUR event, your reaction to random incoming music. Therefore you have already within yourself the reference point about your sensations. This would effectively allow you to overwrite the imperfections of recording mechanism and if you eventually learn do not listen not the music but your reaction to music then you will be able to discover a lot of new for yourself about the “quality” of sound reproduction.

A developed and exercised pattern to evolve into the consumed musical experiences – this is glue that put all together. A sensorial response should ignite an intellectual queasily. The intellectual queasily should ignite actions. The actions should enrich and supplement the sensitively of the sensorial discernment. As the result a person uses own evolvement in musically to benefit something else beside his/her interest in music. The important part in here that the recursive relationship between “the heard”, “the understood”, “the researched”, “the learned”, the “heard evolvely” and the “the understood evolvely” is an objective mechanism for assessment of the entire audio enrolment generally and the… quality of audio payback in particularly

So, how to build the best audio payback?

First, you MUST have all 3 above mentioned ingredients. Without them you are a typical Audio Moron ™, who buy/sell/bild a few accidentally-foolish peaces of audio gizmos monthly/weekly and whom I am consider an audio-waste. Why the peaces foolish? Because they are not tighten to real benefits of music reproduction. It is irrelevant how a playback sound if it’s sound does not do anything.

Second, if you listening habits do comply with 3 above mentioned ingredients then you should heavily employ the Third Law of Audio:

The following the rule above is absolutely required as it is THE ONLY one way to explore audio capacities sincerely.

Third, buy any peace of audio, for instance a “table radio”, and apply to it the Third Law of Audio. Navigate you further actions contingent upon the conclusion you will be able to make. From now and on you won’t need any advice from anyone regarding: how to build the best audio payback?

How a best payback should sound?

This is complicated. Audio people have an implanted into them notion that a better playback produces more agreeable listing experience. Consequentially a better (the best) playback is something that heard more. However it is correct only within a very limited scope, and quit primitive scope I have to add.

I will provide some implied and appeared to be unrelated thesis, intentionally without explanations. If you wish try to develop them further for yourself.

1) A payback is an essential element of Music reproduction however is not essential element for not live music experience. A best amplifier is an amplifier that performs it’s best with being powered up, the best speaker is the one that does the best not even connected.
2) I’m being for a last 24 years a professional photographer I do not keep photographs “for memories” as consider them substitute and surrogate of the real memories.
3) The real musicality is nor really transmitted by sound but also by other means.
4) The pure musicality is not a purpose of musicality but juts a tool for something else.
