Just enjoy...

... the music.

I don't have the best amplifier, I don't have the best CDP, I don't have the best turntable, and I'm not listening to the best mastered music right now... but by God I'm enjoying completely what I'm listening to Smile

:cheers:

Nice sentiment. I know this is a HiFi forum where folks discuss what equipment they have/want, but when it boils down to it, it's all about the music, or should be.

Sure, but you could enjoy it better with active speakers, valves, and those gold-wrapped HDMI cables Smile

Exactly. What is the point of hi-fi- whether it be active or passive, whether it has this cable or that cable, ec etc,  if it isn't for the enjoyment of the music? I love my system I have to admit, but it would be nothing if I didn't enjoy the MUSIC

Great thread, music that drives an emotion doesn't care what it's being played on. Dance 4

Too damn right. I was testing out an affordable Bluetooth speaker on Friday and the little thing was blasting out the tunes in my office in a way that immensely enhanced my day. To paraphrase the Beatles, music is all you need Smile

RE: Just enjoy...

This is precisely where I am at present.  I'm enjoying the music so much - more than I can ever remember doing.  Some of it is no doubt due to being totally satisfied with the way the system is putting it across, but any thoughts of messing around with the equipment are long forgotten.  It is a much better place to be!

Which is why I love the little £12 X-Mi X Mini II portible speaker so much.

The fun? It's in the music that can still be enjoyed when you're away from your expensive hifi system at home. Sure the SQ isn't as good but that doesn't stop me from enjoying music elsewhere too.

Sorry, I should've put a winking smiley with my comment to indicate that I was just joking.

I read this yesterday and I thought to myself. .....SO WHAT!!!!!

 

Lol..... there is no fixed way to 'enjoy' the music you are listening to - why insinuate that there is?

if a man wants to dress in a blonde wig, hi heels and a flowing white gown to enjoy his music is that a problem?

if one wants to tweak, change, adjust will he extract any less joy from what he is listening to?

Like a certain burger seller says - have it your way -  whatever floats your boat, its ours to enjoy how we will, there are no rules.
