On The Experience Of Audio

- Jun 28, 2020-

1. Excessive sound and stain will interfere with people's overall understanding of music

Some amplifiers or stone machines with heavy sound staining may become nice due to sound staining, but this will shift people's attention to the point of good taste, causing the brain to actively receive sound stains in certain frequency bands. More, or too many sound effects of the amplifier, will also cause a certain interference with the absorption of the notes, because the music is whole, not partly listened to. Therefore, sound dyeing will interfere with the overall performance and appreciation of music, delaying the understanding of the profound connotation of music.

However, audiophiles just like most and talk about some characteristics of the sound, or the sound effects of the sound. They often don’t like the machine with no features, because many audiophiles are listening to sound effects and sound stains. In fact, many amplifiers In order to please enthusiasts, the sound has some characteristics. I don’t really want to please music lovers. I think it is more for commercial purposes. Therefore, I think the standard of a power amplifier is that after speaking, only the heart can enter the soul. The music, and the fluctuation of the emotions brought by the music, will not make you notice the high and low midrange, and there is no shaking sound effect. This is really a good sound. A good power amplifier can let the notes catch your nerves in a short time, rather than let the characteristics of the equipment catch you, such as the gorgeousness in the sound, the bright high-pitched sound, the huge low frequency in the sound, etc., if there are these characteristics Then, in my eyes, this equipment is not a first-class equipment, it is a flawed equipment. The deeper you play, the more you know at the end, the more balanced and neutral, the less characteristic equipment is good.


2. Pseudo-details cause impatience of sound

Many systems, due to harmonic distortion, give people a lot of details, and the treble penetration is really good. It seems that there is a lot more overtone. In fact, this kind of sound is unacceptable to listen to, because many of them are odd harmonics. Listening for a long time will make people feel tired. Excessive pseudo-details cause people’s attention to shift, and people are instinctively sensitive to that sound Finally, after listening for an hour, people were exhausted. I don’t know if you have ever heard live performances without amplification in the concert hall, you will find that the sound is collected faster, how can there be so many overtones, but the dynamics and density are very good, too many overtones are sometimes not normal .


3. Audio is a tool, music is the essence

Many fans are more obsessed with the equipment than the music itself. They are more interested in the characteristics of the equipment than the taste. Moreover, the understanding of the equipment is like a blind man, and often takes some characteristics as all. Like, the farmer's uncle bought a good hoe, admiring the hoe's workmanship all day long, and the content of the hoe steel, but I don't want to use this hoe to hoe the ground, test the effect of the hoe, think about the next year's harvest. In fact, we buy audio for listening to music, not for the equipment itself. Many fans are impetuous and upside down. Some fans have reached a very old age and have not figured out whether we are playing audio or audio.


4. All sounds from the sound are canned

Everyone seems to understand this. From the microphone in the recording studio, to the mixer, to the analog-to-digital conversion, to the record, these links have different brands of microphones, different sounds, different lines, and different sounds. Finally, the record is released by the power amplifier, to the speaker, and finally the recovered sound can be the same as what was heard in the studio. Therefore, what we hear is the typical canned sound. But how many people understand what this means, this means that the sound we hear is very different from the sound coming out of the scene, and the sound emitted is also a sound that is roughly similar. However, the important point to understand is that the characteristics of the draw are the most important factors in restoring music. Have you heard the difference between a real guitar and an acoustic guitar? The sound of a real guitar is good in dynamics, overtones, density, and thickness, and the sound from the sound lacks a lot of things, and the gestures can’t reach both form and spirit. So, dynamics, harmonics, density, and thickness are us What should be paid attention to and strengthen when cooking audio cans, otherwise, the sound from this audio system is not a relatively correct sound.


5. Dynamic and density are the shortcomings of most audio

If you stand at the same time from the perspective of an audiophile and a music lover, what affects the level of equipment, that is, the price difference, and the two important factors for the music lover to listen to music comfortably are the dynamics and density of the sound emitted by the system. The equipment that lacks dynamics has lost the type first. Note that the dynamics can not be solved with a large volume. If the dynamics are large, the sound will be distorted, chaotic, scattered, and noisy. Look at the real musical instrument, no matter how loud the sound is, I don't feel disturbed. Density is the hardest thing to do. If you do it well, the texture of each note will come out, and the sound will be higher fidelity, so calmness under the big dynamics is the key. However, these two factors, especially the density factor, are indeed the most difficult part of sound, and it is also the thing that pulls the sound up. The price of a slightly denser system doubled. As for other noble, sweet, bass shock and other factors are not the core point of the system


6. the quiet voice is the most intentional voice

There is a sound from the stereo, how can it be related to silence? However, we listen to some systems, the sound is so natural, soothing, and makes people relax. It is the same as hearing the relaxation of a real instrument. There is no feeling of worry, then this is a quiet sound, or that the background is really dark . These equipments can be liked by people, as if they met an elegant lady, or as if they met a very humble and gentle gentleman. Drinking tea, chatting casually, without disturbing you, is a good voice. Hearing this situation is the need for equipment adjusters a little Zen and philosophical thinking.


7. Amplifier is the heart of a system

Many previous opinions were that the box was the mouthpiece, the most critical part of the system, and the importance was comparable to the heart. However, after years of practice, it was found that the sound box changes to the sound are more in the form, at most the sound effect. The difference, and the decisive factor for the sound, spirit and connotation of the sound is precisely the power amplifier. Maybe many people say that it is a sound source. I admit that the sound source is the brain and the core, but the core decoding chip of the current sound source is not DIY. Most of them are factory-made, and the parameters are very good. I often cannot hear CDs and decoders. The sound changes when connected. It can be said that the impact of the sound source on a system is very small, unless you change to listening to tape and vinyl.


If the sound of a set of power amplifiers is excellent, then you no matter how cheap and high-end boxes are, they are equally good. Perhaps the bass and treble ratios are different, but the harmonious connotation of music can still be heard in one ear. of.
