What? I Called Hi-fi For So Many Years And I Was Wrong ...

First, fever audio is a combination of software and hardware. Fever records or sound carrier files (CD-ROMs, network-downloaded streams, or digital audio, etc.) that record live scenes are the source for users to obtain sound information of the scene environment (hereinafter referred to as sound carriers). So can this sound carrier 100% restore the real information of the scene? The understanding of the old cat who has a fever in the audio circle for many years: whether it is a concert or a small personal record, it is carefully processed and synthesized in the recording studio after the sound engineer passes the track of several dozens of microphones in the field in advance. of. The enthusiasts who have been to the concert site know that there are many audiences in the concert hall and the concert site, and each audience listens to the effect differently. The final sound effects of concerts, concerts and other records are basically emperor's thrones-can a recording carrier that only feedbacks the sound characteristics of the emperor's thrones be called a 100% restoration scene? Therefore, the old cat with a fever thinks that no record company or Internet music company can shoot the breast to ensure that its own sound carrier is a strict reproduction of all the sound information on the scene.

How should we understand fever records? Although it is very convenient for consumers to record now, they can take a mobile phone to the concert hall or concert site to record. But these recordings can only become recording records, and cannot be called a fever recording carrier. Moreover, with the current reduction in the cost of recording, our society is hitting a large number of low-quality music carriers, but under the banner of fever and originality. Listen carefully, you can't listen at all. Many classic records and carriers are many famous musicians and record companies who have invited famous sound engineers to use professional equipment to record in well-known recording studios. In terms of content, the quality of sound is comparable to non-network music. Although these record companies cannot guarantee that the sound will be 100% restored to the scene, but through the HI-ART skills of the sound engineer, the final record will be 100% very nice.

Secondly, the old cat with a fever thinks that calling high-end speakers HIFI and HI-END is a self-binding statement in itself. Audiophiles who know a little bit about audio know that when the same song or music clip is played back on different HIFI or HI-END audio equipment, the sound is slightly different. The simplest is that many enthusiasts often say the characteristics of the sound of the sound system according to the origin and manufacturer of the sound system: American sound (Leader, MartinLogan Martin Lugan) is mostly strong, magnificent, suitable for replaying popular music; United Kingdom Most of the audio (KEF, Rogers, etc.) are soft and delicate, very rich in music, suitable for replaying classical music; Danish, German, French (Guifeng, Einstein, Blumenhof, etc.) European audio, etc. The majority is between the first two. As for the audio manufacturers, the true sound of the monitor sound is relatively real, partial, and it sounds dry for a long time; the sound of Tianlang is just the opposite. Then I asked: Who can fully restore and reproduce the live sound of these sound systems?

What these audio manufacturers do is to ensure that the basic sound information of the original sound, the designer of the product manufacturer has added his own understanding of the sound, that is, HI-ART (artistic) of the sound, is the high-end audio product Really have hundreds of thousands, millions of capital. Just like Picasso's paintings and Jahmetti's sculptures, this is the embodiment of art. This is where high-end, flagship fever audio is more expensive than monitor audio.

Finally, talk about the environment in the user's home. To be honest, this is a heavy topic. Because the housing prices are now high, old cats with fever have once gone to some enthusiasts' homes. Home theater and fever audio systems are all placed in the living room to mix and match. Only a few homes separate the home theater and fever audio, and the characteristics of fever equipment The room environment is carefully acoustically treated and then meets your own sound requirements. And aren't these treatments based on the enthusiast's own taste for artistic processing?

Therefore, the sound source cannot completely reproduce the sound scene, the audio equipment is artistically processed, and the enthusiasts also customize the decoration according to their own voice.
