Unique sounds

I am continually in awe of how personal is the world. Look into the sky with the knowledge that only you—not any other human in history—has ever witnessed that combination of blue and clouds. That no one has ever stood on that spot, at that moment, to enjoy that sky, smelled that air, felt that breeze. Each waking moment is absolutely personal to us.

Your home HiFi system has never been replicated, and the music you so love never reproduced just as you hear it. Even if your audio system or Home Theater equipment is duplicated down to the last screw and foot, the rooms are not the same, nor the day, nor your mood, nor the copy of music being played.

We’re blessed to have created in our homes, unique temples of sound. Our sound and video systems are as distinct as our days.

As you wake this morning, it might put a smile on your face to know that today will be special—different from any other day, moment, or time in your existence.

And as you listen to music, it’s good to remember you’re hearing it in ways unlike anyone else on the planet.

A true one-of-a-kind experience to be enjoyed, shared, made better, polished, perfected, reveled in.

PS Audio has gone to a direct sales model, so no more dealers, including me, although I sold nothing for them as they have been competing with their dealers for years. So, as in this blog, you will see some PS Audio “advertising”, which is understandable, considering that Paul writes every day and I will try to continue supporting him by re-posting this daily blog.

Still, Paul is an excellent writer and has something new to say every day, so with his permission, I’ve been posting his blogs for some time now and will continue to do so.

The search for panaceas

Silver bullets kill werewolves. Penicillin cures all infections. Cod liver oil eases aches and pains. Aftermarket audio fuses always improve the sound.

We’re continuously in search of magic potions, silver bullets, clear remedies to improve our high end audio systems. One magic cure for all is the shortest path to audio nirvana. Who wouldn’t want that?

Unfortunately, the truth of the matter is rather different (and boring).

There are no panaceas. Not in medicine nor in high-end audio.

Building a wonderful HiFi system that enriches our lives with music takes some time and often a bit of patience.

Like anything good, to reach a certain level of perfection one must work at the details until they are just right.

This isn’t intended to cause us to shy away from building an audio system, but rather to remind us that when we hear of this or that changing everything for the better and ending our quest for perfection, we should be a bit careful.

Miracles are the result of getting the right building blocks together.
