I get more emotional to my hifi gear than my lawn mower. Or maybe I should ask, "hey man, what kind of lawn mower do you have?"But what has the equipment to do with the appreciation of music? It's a tool, like a hammer or a washing machine. I get as much emotional connection with my hifi as I get from my lawn mower.
Music, however, has nothing to do with the equipment it's reproduced on. In most cases, it was composed hundreds of years before reproduction was even possible, so no, no connection as far as I'm concerned.
The major problem is: audiophiles seem to do not understand this very simple point:
First : Emotion/communication/inspiration/soul or whatever are in the music itself, not in the gear.
Second: that is the music reproduction abilities which are measured, not the music itself. Then, you cannot distinguish music reproduction (fidelity) from measurements.
Parents have that intuitive thing that's best for their children.
It's the same @ school with our teachers, with our leaders.
Without a clear road ahead there's no direction. Without scientific studies there's no climate change, no audio sound evolution. Without measurements we are advancing blind in the darkness.
