I was listening to my system this morning (enjoying it very much by the way - sounding better than ever), and was wondering to myself “how much better can it sound?” Which got me thinking - what am I even listening for? I know it sounds good, but I lack perspective and greater context.
So I was thinking…wouldn’t it be awesome if you could go somewhere and have someone teach you what to listen for, offer a/b/c and so on comparisons of different set-ups playing the same music, and be able to learn and experience for themselves the various differences in systems. Not just in systems, but for someone to teach you what to listen for and then have it pointed out to them through experience.
Is this something PS Audio has thought of? Is this something PS Audio currently does at its stores? I’ve seen youtube videos where something along these lines seems to be done, but if something like this was offered I’d be there in a heartbeat. It would make me a more informed buyer, and certainly more aware of my systems strengths, limitations, and what I should ultimately look to as a point-of-reference. Plus, I’d know just how good certain pieces of equipment can sound, and what pieces - removed or added to a system - bring it to that point I imagine something like a good 8 hour workshop could capture such a thing.
Again, I imagine this has probably been done before - at a brick-and-mortar hifi store or other hifi manufacturer - but it’d be awesome if PS Audio could conduct such a thing. Even if it was only a few times a year. Thoughts?
