These days, there is no shortage of audiophile cables and other items for music lovers to make the most of.
One man who no doubt has his fair share of such products is Tony Ware. Writing on SF Weekly recently, he noted that he is an audiophile and, commenting on what he has in common with fellow sound enthusiasts, he said: “All audiophiles have had those singular moments when we recognized how truly physical sound could be.
“It wasn’t just on or off, more or less; it was a topography of emotions. Age wears away some of the thrill of discovery, and it takes some edge off the old hearing – and being an audiophile means endlessly pursuing the vividness of that revelatory first listen.”
He went on to note that he tends to litter tabletops with paraphernalia and mull over frequency-response graphs.
Mr Ware added: “Of course, audiophiles will never be satisfied, because all this effort goes into setting an experience that is utterly subjective.”
He pointed out that everyone hears sounds differently and each has a different definition of the “perfect throaty-but-controlled midrange”.
The audiophile added: “Ultimately, our favorite sound is the UPS truck driving up to deliver new recordings or gear to audition.”
He concluded by stating: “When I was younger I bought more albums; now, I buy more sound. This beast, no matter how well-fed, will always be hungry.”
Thankfully for people like Mr Ware, it is now easier than ever to access audiophile power cable products and other items that can enhance sound experiences. Many individuals turn to the web to buy the goods they want. This can offer them much more choice than their local stores and it is also a highly convenient way of shopping. All consumers need are a spare few moments and a web connection.
