This Paul’s Post is short, but it hits home with me as often in high end audio systems, the details make a lot of difference.
However, you need to have an excellent audio and/or video system with all the major things correct, in order for the little details to have their full effect.
Our audio systems are only as good as the weakest link, but these are seldom tweaks, such as cables, although if you put bright sounding silver cables in the wrong system, it can ruin it.
Champagne has a pronounced taste not found in white wine, yet the difference is only a dose of CO².
A motional feedback corrected woofer is a significant upgrade, yet the difference is only a small bit of circuitry.
A homemade waffle with expertly browned butter-infused maple syrup is an extraordinary experience. A Kellog Eggo waffle…not so much.
It is often the fine details that differentiate good from great.
It’s easy to overlook the details and focus on the big stuff, but it’s often a mistake.
