Perfect Sound Quality
What would you class as the perfect and most accurate sound possible to the original recordings in terms of music.
I have been going nuts lately trying to get the best from my laptop audio and have been playing about with speaker enhancements and sample rates and even the equaliser settings in Windows Media Player, some albums sound great while others sound muddled and harsh.
It is always impossible to get a good even sound without sacrificing detail in certain areas.
The type of music I am listening to are trance compilation albums so a natural yet vibrant sound is what am aiming for.
I want as flat frequency response as possible while having good tight solid bass but the midrange has to be prominent so I can hear the synths and vocals without the treble sounding too trash and dominating things, some albums are bass heavy while others sound naturally tinny, I try to get the same sound on every single album but everything is different there is no way you can do it.
I have my Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop on the same desk as my M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 speakers which are connected via the 3.5 headphone jack.
