Maybe a fun post. What are your thoughts about why you like audio. Is it A) the love of music itself and the enjoyment of listening to music whether it be classical, jazz, rock or hip hop or ...? Or, is it B) the magic of some bit of electronics and mechanicals reproducing sound close to the live recorded performance? For me, music was in our house ever since I can remember and that was almost 60 years ago. I can’t really recall a time when music wasn’t part of daily life. It all seemed to come from a box in the dining room. When I was maybe five or so I had a realization that these sounds we were hearing and enjoying came from a cabinet that had some spinning machines in it, one of which had two round things spinning in tandem (a Grundig reel to reel), and a spinning black wheel with an arm riding on top of it (a Telefinken turntable) and I was hooked. I could hit a button and by my command stop the orchestra or upon command, start it again. What power! So the love of music was first the music itself, and then the came the marvel of how these devices delivered the music to my senses. I’m still hooked. Music is almost without exception listened to daily, and I am always striving to relive or recreate those first experiences. I hope that desire never ends. My vote is A and B.
