Will Hi-Fi Have An End In Terms Of Sound?

This question, as long as you observe the development direction of the audio industry in the past few decades, you can know one or two... From the first half of the twentieth century, Western Electric opened the Hi-Fi prelude to many European and American brands. Hi-Fi's high-priced audio brand is actually not on the road of "high fidelity" (high degree of reduction)... Its design limitations have spawned a variety of lack of reduction, and produced various "flavors" in subjective listening... Many enthusiasts like to search for their own "flavors" to buy, and even add a variety of "flavored" wires, filters, floor boxes, and cushion materials to the system. It's like a pot of porridge. Because of the low reduction degree, the ingredients are only three or two. Of course, it is not umami. Then change the line today (put salt), and add a ground box (sugar) tomorrow... Adding seasoning dozens of times After that, can you tell if the "protagonist ingredient" in the original porridge is chicken or duck? The current chaos in the civilian fever market has prevented many manufacturers from having to pay expensive R&D expenses to improve the degree of reduction, and make the appearance attractive, and do a good job in marketing. They can also prosper...The more they are away from Hi-Fi As it goes further, the few civilian manufacturers with pursuits and ideals, and most of the studio monitoring brands, can enter the following discussion: In the playback equipment system, the terminal speaker distortion is the largest in the entire system, for decades The speaker’s distortion has not been significantly improved...not to mention that it is similar to the original sound by 99.999999%. The harmonic distortion of headphones is lower than that of speakers, but the organs that can feel sound include not only the ears, but also the head cavity, chest cavity, etc. In the abdomen or even the skin, these human organs feel the vibration of sound waves together to form a sense of presence (headphones compared to speakers, lack of participation of other organs and produce another "distortion"). In addition to headphones, the studio also uses speakers to monitor...
