It's often tempting to believe that if one thing is true then ergo, something else must also be true.
Take for example a system that excels at reproducing the sound of an orchestra. Beethoven, Mahler, Mozart, and Copeland are perfect.
Does that mean Coltrane, Morrison, Hendrix, and Enya are equally represented?
Are glorious highs and mids always accompanied by realistic bass?
When it comes to sweeping generalities and expectations it's rare one truism follows another.
Too often I have made the mistake of believing that if this is one way then surely what follows is predetermined.
Truth is, life and stereo systems are full of surprises.
It's one of the reasons I truly love what we do.
