It was a rainy Sunday afternoon when a very experienced audio engineer at a well-known brand came to listen to music in our reference room. Apart from coming to listen to our acoustics, he wanted to test a prototype of a new amplifier. Doug McLeod’s ‘Beautiful Blues’ was playing when he entered the room. Before even sitting on the listening chair, he turned around in amazement saying;
“What is this?
I have never ever heard anything as real as this …”
What followed was a listening session that lasted more than 3 hours. He had never heard acoustics like these in more than 20 years of audio development work. He could not stop enjoying the music. His tears flowed as freely as the notes and musical emotions.
Many other listeners in our reference room have experienced the same unique presentation of music playback and decided to improve the acoustics in their listening rooms. Listening to music like this is a deep emotional experience that goes beyond goose bumps. Listeners often unintentionally start crying as the emotional message of music reaches them.
