HIFI Not Required

Sitting in the dentist’s waiting area first thing this morning reading the latest “Air and Space Quarterly”, I was psyching myself up for the crown that was to come when Adele’s cover of “Make You Feel My Love” came over the office Muzak.
The eyes immediately closed, the mind calmed, the body swayed.
HIFI not required.


This reminds me of an interview I heard with a well-known musician a long time ago. He described how he was “blown away“ the first time he heard Peter, Paul and Mary singing “500 Miles“ over a 1960s car radio. That’s about as far from hi-fi as you can get, yet the emotional content of the music came through loud and clear.


Certainly HiFi is not required! :astonished: But it also certainly adds to the enjoyment of the experience. :wink:

The down side is that once you hear good HiFi, you can’t ‘unhear’ it. (At least I can’t.)
