PS Audio: It’s only the music I am interested in

Paul McGowan .....

Really?  I hear that a lot and I am sure it’s true for some of us.  But my sense is most of us like the gear, the kit, just as much as we like the music.

When I attend a consumer audio show I see endless numbers of people wandering from room to room looking at equipment.  Most sit and listen to a sprinkle of music, some take their music with them and listen to the same piece in each room.  Are they judging the music or the kit?  I would suggest the latter.

I don’t know about you but I love the equipment in our industry.  The crazy designs, the wild industrial finishes and looks, the latest innovation trying to set the world on fire.  You just don’t see a lot of that spark in any other industry anywhere else in the world.  It’s part of what keeps me interested in our sport.

Yes, I love the music, but I love what makes the music as well.
