What's required?

One doesn’t necessarily have to know the difference between a 4 cylinder and an 8 cylinder engine to appreciate the virtues of a car. But in the broader sense we, as music lovers and Audiophiles, need a certain level of something to guide us in the right direction.

So, what's required when it comes to gathering enough information to build a dream system? Do we really need to understand the difference between DSD and PCM, or VTA and azimuth to find the DAC or turntable set up perfect for us?

I would argue no. No, we do not. What we need is a clear vision of what we hope to achieve. Where do we want to be? Are we hoping to get close to the sound we get in Music Room 2 with the Infinity IRS V? Or as perfect as our friend's system? Perhaps we just want pleasant background music. Or maybe it's blaring loud and we hope to plaster ourselves against the far wall.

Whatever it is that we hope to achieve, the technical knowledge to get there is far less important than a clear understanding of what the end result should be.

If we know what we want, we can then take the next steps of getting the advice necessary to build our dream system at a budget that fits our needs.

There's plenty of resources available from friends, forums, magazines, or us.
