The near perfect system.


Recommended Posts

Could you imagine if the collective minds of the members on Stereonet came together, and used the vast array of knowledge to build the near perfect system.

I say near perfect, because in my mind there always has to be room for improvement.

Man that would be One heck of a system. There may be only one problem for this to come to fruition, there needs to be more Indians than Chiefs in order to construct such a system. Might be a bit top heavy on Chiefs, I say with the utmost regard and respect for the Stereonet hierarchy. 🤗

Although good for practicing painting and decorating , that would just introduce distortion and loss of fidelity  ...I think take the OP bar higher still, so there was no room for improvement. What I am listening to at this very minute might just do it, with the part that I am normally concerned with.

Hmm…I would have thought it would be buy a stack of esoteric ‘high end’ components, throw them in any old room and then ‘tune’ the system with diamond crusted network cables and cryogenically treated speaker cables.

Wow your are a tuff crowd. Are you all implying that the brains trust couldn’t get together and agree on a concept, without spilling blood?

Boxing ring, A?  That's too p*ssy - an Octagon needs to be installed.  :smile:

Everyone would divide into the usual tribes and espouse only that brand of  dogma

 

It is already formulating in this thread right now.

The word 'perfect' isn't at all helpful as an ideas trigger. Perfect for what?

Also: good in hifi is very good in life. Include your loved ones. Listen to the music.

Brilliant! At least the $ outlay would be manageable

Well if it did ( end), this forum would be Tumbleweed central

Not at all, we would finally be in agreement , that music reproduction had our collective strengths in showing how it was done. like a fine recipe, many interpretations , and still room for nuances to bring out the best

oh yeah where would be the thread to "mod" the said clock radio.. am sure there would be a thread to "re clock" it or threads on benefit of upgrade power supply to a standalone linear supply and such ... 

 

the better mouse trap ... isnt that the aim of on the road to perfection ? with only imperfection along the way...

I'm all for advancing the state-of-the-art in clock radios,  and although i don't use one myself,  sometimes one just needs to take one for the team. I suggest Cryo treatment as bare minimum and a starting point on the road to Nirvana.

we have a digital clock radio... so am sure the arguments of digital vs analog will continue .. with analog proponents claiming it to be king and digital just being  1s and 0s rather than real music ... :D 

 

yep all will be good.. the status quo will still remain...

Aah, but Steff ... my wife has zero interest in sitting down and listening to (ie. focussing on - not just background) music.  Just as I have absoloootely no interest in playing Sudoku on my phone!  :lol:

 

IOW ... different strokes for different folks.  :shocked:

Every system is a series of compromises we have to make. We all have different ideas on what we are willing to compromise on. Even if you take like minded individuals who agree on the same basic approach, you will end up with different systems because some might find the compromises unacceptable. 

 

Perhaps one way to see where SNA members will lean is to make a poll with a bunch of questions 😉

 

- What is the speaker's radiating pattern? Choices: monopole, dipole, omni, or cardioid. 

- Speaker configuration: point source, MTM, horn, panel, other? 

- Ported or unported? 

- Subwoofers - yes or no? 

- DSP - yes or no? 

- Active - yes or no? 

- Analog or digital or both? 

- Tweaks (cables, ether regen, USB reclockers, etc) - yes or no? 

- Room treatment - none, a little, moderate, or extensive? 

- How should electronics be chosen? By sound, by measurements? 

 

I think the number of permutations are infinite. This is what makes the hobby so interesting, everyone chooses a different compromise even though we are all chasing the same thing 🙂

Yes I think that approach would yield much more useful info. 

 

Does this site's poll function allow for a series of binary Qs?  If so, hopefully someone will do exactly what you've suggested.

 

Edit: oops not all are even binary, might have a few too many variables in play already
