It's all so confusing
I received an email from a new customer seemingly overwhelmed by the myriad of choices in equipment, and he didn't mean brands. Just assembling the simplest of high-end systems can be a challenge. Though I dislike the term, back in the day, I can't think of one better to describe the long ago when it was easy: A set of speakers, integrated amp, turntable, a roll of zip cord, and you were good to go. Today it's a much more complicated process in the same way cars have gone too. Remember how easy it was to work on one? Tweak the carburetor, advance the timing, throw a bottle of elixir in the gas tank, you were good to go. But, here's the thing. Cars and stereo systems of yore weren't all that good. Their memories are much sweeter than their performance ever was. Change is a good thing, though better often comes with the price of more learning.
