Skeptics

You don’t have to look too far to find skeptics. It’s our nature to question that which does not fit our worldview.

Take audio equipment fuses for example. I first scoffed at the notion of a fuse impacting sound quality. After all, it’s a half-inch glass tube passing AC power. It’s hard to imagine that tiny object affecting the sound quality of an 80 pound beast like the BHK amplifier. Yet there’s little argument it does (which is why we went some lengths to upgrade our stock fuses).

A skeptic might say “it’s impossible! I cannot believe this has any impact on sound.”

Someone who has just heard the improvement might say, “Hard to imagine how it couldn’t impact sound quality. You’re squeezing hundreds of Watts through a wire no thicker than a whisker.”

The role of skeptic in the grand scheme of things is important. In fact, skeptics are critical to furthering understanding.

If we don’t question what seems wrong, we’ll never understand what is right.

I wonder…

My long-term goal for PS Audio company has never veered off course. Bring high-end audio to as many people around the world as possible.

That’s quite a challenge, especially at a time when industry consensus is we’re shrinking and interest is waning.

I don’t buy it. I don’t see it, either—and I am uncertain where those feelings come from.

I am convinced my long term dream is viable, I am just not certain what form it might take.

Would high-end streaming services like a better version of Sonos describe what I have in mind? Hard to say, but what intrigues me are the possibilities ahead.

Imagine if we could build hi-fi furniture or small appliances that connected the world with quality sound. Would that not be something special? Who would not spend a few extra bucks to have better sound?

I refuse to believe quality is not a product.
