If I want to listen to music I play flac via the TV hifi, if I want to listen to my stereo I select songs that sound good not what I want to hear, its about the stereo not the music.

... "I never did care for music much, it's the high fidelity!" - this was someone's signature on here for a while.

Its an interesting outlook, one that I suppose we all follow to some extent or other - I suspect very few of us play "rubbish" through our systems: we're all chasing what sounds good.

To the OP, do you play any musical instruments? I've found money is better spent there, as (IMHO) you can enjoy yourself much more making music than listening to it. For example, I recently (without even trying it) bought a 2nd hand bass head for 150. I bought it because the brand has a reputation for being reliable, it has a graphic eq and ~300w on tap.

I don't think I could do the same for hifi without some serious reading up first.

Chris

Ok, say ten Hail Marantz, and The Audiophiles Creed until you think Cable Elevators help a system sound better and you'll be fine.

We're going to end up with some kind of initiation ceremony at this rate.

I haven't got a CD-Player with upscaling,
just a MP3-Player from my uncle (a present for my 13th birthday last year).

I also don't have a DAC with Alpha-processing, I've only read about it in the internet.

And I don't have high quality active speakers, just a little battery powered docking station.

But one thing is true, I have a lot of music (more than 50 songs, recorded on my mp3-player).

Nevertheless, I feel totally ashamed!
Please forgive me!!

Just because you don't have the equipment, it doesn't mean that you can not find and get any. Therefore, you are not a liar.

That's been my signature on Head-Fi for several years.

Assuming the original post isn't a lie,
And the OP has megga buck EQ..
Then everyones got to start somewhere.

The question has got to be what bought the OP to this site?
What was the intent?

Regards
M. Gregg
