It is of endless fascination to me how unique our systems are. There’s nothing in the world like Music Room Two and nothing sounds the same either.
And what you have in your home is as unique as mine. No one has the same room, furniture, setup, altitude, humidity, flooring, audio equipment, video equipment and cabling that you do. And, it all matters to the end result.
Which is why it’s important to take advice from others with a grain of salt. I can advise you all day long to try this cable, swap out that amp for another, or reposition your system in a certain way, but that advice cannot be faithfully followed without self-evaluation.
It is up to each of us to choose what works for us. We evaluate our choices by listening to the end result.
If our systems reproduce music in ways that move us emotionally—connecting us closer to the artist—then our unique setup is working.
There are many things in this life we share, but our systems are not one of them.
They are as unique as we are.
