A eureka revelation about good hifi
A revelation I have had this morning about my hifi. Now I've upgraded everything, the final jigsaw piece being my new cartridge, I think one of the main differences (apart from the dynamics, the accuracy, the "they're in the room" effect, the tightness, the warmth, etc etc) is ... the fact that there's no noise. Just music. Regardless of how loud I turn it up, even if I'm playing Iron Maiden, I can hear my wife talking! (she's saying turn that bloody horrid noise off). In fact we can just about hear each other whispering!! It's like before there was an underlying noisiness level that has just silently and suddenly vanished through the floor. I didn't expect that. It's lovely. It means I can play the music at a good strong volume at one of our dinner parties and it won't be too noisy or fatiguing.
