World Class Products for Superior Sound

“World class” can mean different things to different people. To me it is a reference to the performance level and the price point. A world class $1,000 component had better be vastly outperformed by one at 10K. So although the most extreme audiophile may not consider a moderately priced piece to be exceptional, for many the price no object choices are irrelevant. I embrace both. If you can’t afford to drop the price of a modest home on your stereo that doesn’t mean you can’t thoroughly enjoy your music. At the same time finding products that set new standards at much higher prices is always welcome, both in their own right and for the potential trickle down effect.

Speakers

Speakers are, in many respects, the most obvious components in your system. You not only hear them; you see them as well. But obvious and important are not synonymous. Often there are minor tonality differences that are easily heard. However they are typically easily adjusted to. If the signal arriving at your speakers has issues they can be more fundamental that just tonal aberrations. For example a good speaker can sound different in two different rooms. If there is an issue with the signal they are receiving, that problem will always be there. As always, there’s a synergy between system components, room and listener.

I would often prefer a competent pair of speakers driven by good electronics over great speakers driven by mediocre electronics.

Electronics

In two channel systems, "electronics" generally refers to both source and amplification components. This category includes preamps, DACs, CD players, phono stages, and power amps. It excludes turntables, which are transducers, like microphones and speakers.

Although speakers make a strong statement, the ultimate sound of your system is dependent on the signal being provided to them. Some speakers present a more difficult load than others and the power rating often has little to do with an amp’s ability to drive a more difficult speaker load. Unnatural sounding electronics can’t be cured by the speakers. Often, more revealing speakers make the issues more obvious and unenjoyable.

All Else

There are many other important system elements beyond source, amplification and speaker products that can surprisingly enhance sound and performance.

Quality cables and power conditioning devices are now considered important system components due to their surprising influence on the overall sound. While the role of high performance cables is often downplayed, the reality is easily experienced.

Turntables, cartridges, isolation devices record cleaners, and headphones all obviously have a place in a good playback system, depending on a customer’s interests and desires.
