Την καλύτερη ατάκα που μου έχει πει αντιπρόσωπος καλωδίων αξίας μικρομεσαίου ΙΧ, σε έκθεση στο Χίλτον ήταν " αυτό το καλώδιο θα κάνει το ηχείο σου λιγότερο φλύαρο". !!!!!
Στα 5 δευτερόλεπτα που άκουγα τα εγκεφαλικά μου κύτταρα να γίνονται φλαμπέ, μου κατάφερε και το δεξί κροσέ του λέγοντας " αν το συνδιασεις με αυτό το καλώδιο ρεύματος αξίας γκαρσονιέρας το μπάσο σου θα σε ανατριχιαζει σε κάθε χτύπημα της κάσας....(μάλλον του μακαρίτη του Τέσλα!! )
Ρουφηξα μια τελευταία γουλια εσπρέσσο λουγκο και χάθηκα στο πλήθος.. αποσβολωμενος..

"The term "high-end' refers to a products performance not their price.

High end audio isn't about equipment. it's about music.

High end manufactures care more about how the product sounds then they do about how it performs on the test bench.

The point isn't how much you spend on a hi-fi, but how carefully you can choose components to make a satisfying system within your budget.

Don't be swayed by technical claims, listen to the product for yourself.

All audio components affect the signal passing through them. A fundamental audiophile value holds that the sins of commission (adding something to the music) are far worse than the sins of omission (removing something from the music).

The sad but universal truth about audio equipment is that, any time you put a signal into an audio component it never comes out better on the other end. You therefore want to keep the signal path as simple as possible, to remove any unnecessary electronics from between you and the music.

High-End Audio is about making the hardware disappear.

If the mid-range isn't right, nothing else matters.

Of all the ways music reproduction is astounding, sound staging is without question the most miraculous. The soundstage has the physical properties of width and depth, producing a sense of great size and space in a listening room.

The dynamic range of an audio system isn’t how loudly it will play, rather the difference in levels between soft and loud sound that the systems can reproduce.

One of the most important aspects of a systems presentation is Musicality. Musicality isn’t any specific quality that you can listen for, but rather the overall musical satisfaction your system gives you."

Κάποιος πωλητής σε έκθεση πριν από 6-7 χρόνια προσπαθούσε να με πείσει πως ένα καλώδιο ρεύματος των 1000 ευρώ (θα μου το άφηνε 800....) θα μεταμόρφωνε τον ενισχυτή μου, ένα NAD C350 που λόγω της κλοπής του συστήματός μου είχε πάρει θέση στο ρακ.
Μιλάμε για ενισχυτή του 500άρικου με καλώδιο των 1000 ευρώ.
Είχα και την πίκρα μου από την κλοπή, έκανα μεταβολή και έφυγα χωρίς να του πω τίποτα

Με μηδέν έξοδα βάζεις τα ηχεία για ακουστικά όπως έκανα εγώ. Βελτίωση αξιοσημείωτη. Κανένα καλώδιο δεν μου άλλαξε τόσο πολύ τον ήχο. :p

1.6 High-end hi-fi

The high-end hi-fi market caters for the obsessive customer who often spends
more time tinkering and comparing than actually listening for enjoyment.
High-end products are frequently over-engineered, employing massive chunks
of expensive materials for reasons which do not withstand scrutiny. Often
a particular shortcoming is ruthlessly eliminated by some expensive technique.
Whilst this improvement may be genuine, it is often at the expense of
serious neglect in other areas. Consequently most high-end installations are
unbalanced because too much attention is concentrated in a few places and
because each unit is ‘perfected’ without considering how it will operate in a
system. A common failing is that too much has been spent on the electronics
and not enough on the loudspeakers. Precise signals are generated which the
loudspeakers cannot reproduce. Despite the high cost of these systems their
ergonomics are usually very poor and they represent extremely poor value
for money although the high cost is usually sold as imparting exclusivity. A
small industry has sprung up producing accessories for high-end hi-fi, many
of which appear to defy the laws of physics and all of which operate in the
area of diminishing returns. Naturally magazines are available to cater for the
tastes of high-end hi-fi fans. In general these are difficult to read because the
technical terms they contain often mean what the writer wants them to mean
rather than what the skilled person would understand them to mean. The term
pseudoscience has been coined to describe this kind of thing."
