Asheville, Walnut Cove, Biltmore Forrest and Western North Carolina’s Audio and Home Theater specialists present Cane Creek AV and Paul McGowan – PS Audio, Intl.

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.

I love this writing from Paul and agree that its not necessary to have a high end audio system to experience what he’s talking about. However, a high end audio system doesn’t need to be that expensive and definitely doesn’t need to be complex, to bring this type of joy.

Music is more than sound

We find ourselves focusing on audio performance and sound quality a lot. Yet, music can be so much more than just sound.

Music is communication. A means of reaching deep into our inner beings.

Healing us when we’re sick.

Energizing us when we’re down.

Uplifting spirits.

Tears.

Laughter.

Inspiration.

Think of all the times you’ve been moved by the sound of music in your home.

How much is that worth to you? To your friends and family?

It may not take a great HiFi system to convey more than sound and connect us with music.

But it sure helps.
