Music my hi-fi ruined
English

Just a bit of fun. We often talk about hi-fi transforming our listening, but are there candidates for music changed for the worse by the purchase of a better hi-fi system? For example, music associated with a earlier type of listening or equipment – late night to Caroline or Luxemburg radio or an old cassette recording. Perhaps a lyric you had reasoned out in your head as making sense was dashed once you heard it properly? My contributions are: 1) My wife’s Holst Planet Suit LP recording by Sir Adrian Bolt was ruined by our GyroDec which revealed a whole load of instruments that were just not there before; 2) The vinyl 45 ‘Follow that Car’ by Rococo that contained the line ‘Go Father go’, was revealed when downloaded and played on our Uniti2 as ‘Go farther go’ – shame as we liked the idea of the desperate lover chasing his girlfriend in a car driven by his Dad!

Perhaps sometimes our best music memories come from our crackly and hissy pre-hi-fi days?

I don't understand why that ruins it? Surely that's a good thing?

You mean it's not a string quartet?  EDITED me!

RE: Music my hi-fi ruined

I upgraded to a Rega Planar 3 when I sold my old hifi to a friend. It was amazing the differnce it made! Steely Dan Do It Again, Supertramp Crime of the Century amd Led  Zep 4 just blew me away and  friends said Gibson Les Pauls and Fender Strats never sounded better.

Best wishes
