Searching for the heart of the matter is an investigative practice we’re all familiar with. We dig deep into many elements to suss out the essence, the soul, the heart of the matter in question.
Our HiFi systems are much the same. We love the clarity they give us. We look deep into the performance for the tiniest of details. We get excited when a once covered musical cue is revealed, excited enough to even make the news public amongst our peers: the rumble of the subway under Carnegie Hall, the pre-echo on Shelby Lynne’s Just a Little Lovin’, the conductor’s chair squeak on the Reference Recording’s Rutter Requiem.
When we audiophiles turn the lights low and the music to just right level, it’s the heart of music we’re hoping to connect with.
Our systems get us closer to the beating soul of the performer in ways mediocre products cannot even begin to approach.
No, we need resolving power to get at the heart of the matter
…oops, I meant music.
