Hi fi is for Life
I'll try again....
I'm having a major Ozric Tentacles session tonight and it's got me thinking about the sort of hi-fi that the artists might have at home to assess/enjoy their work once it's been been finished in the studio; could this be a magazine feature?

How old do you have to be to know the answer, without googling it?

I'm guessing many of them don't. Many of them are probably like some actors who never watch their own films. Why would they care what the end result sounds like? There are people who take care of how the album is mixed and presented to the public...

I have always wondered if artists and musicians care about the sound quality of their recordings and have often fantasized about how a musician would react to listening to a recording of their music on my system .
I think some artists do care about sound quality , I watched a documentary about Michael Jackson recently and he was ultra fussy about the sound of his recordings and would do them over and over until he was 100% happy .
It seems there are some other artists that do care and have decent HiFi systems too .
I suspect there are many more audiophile musicians than people would imagine but they are just reluctant to talk about it

I do have other fantasies that would probably be considered to be more mainstream but I doubt that the moderators would allow me to post them here
Mac mini > AVI ADM9Ts
Well your fantasies are pretty tame compared to mine.
My fantasy involves a jug of gravy and Susan Boyle wearing nothing but a pair of wellies and a shower cap.
