In response to our little series on purity and musical truth one of our Australian readers posted this comment:
"It's all about enjoyment. I have listened to a number of systems that are very detailed and analytical and I hear things that I don't hear on my system but they are cold and emotionless and to me not enjoyable."
And I think that sums all this up quite nicely. There are those of us who insist purity is the only path to achieving musical truth and any deviation from that path must be avoided - but I think we've shown there are a number of ways to get there.
Bass and treble controls are not pure but in some cases they may bring us more enjoyment of the music and that's what matters.
Just remember all the great music out there to be enjoyed on your system.
I am turning mine on right now.
