Features (checklists) are table stakes. And they ve changed in 30 years. You have to support movies, HDMI, >=5 speakers, remote controls!, streaming content, etc. You no longer need support turntables, tape recorders, etc. (Too many receivers carry legacy stuff around. Supporting legacy interconnects via add ons is acceptable, burdening everyone with the cost of tons of connectors and internal circuitry isn t.) 2. Electronics have gotten better in 30 years, not worse power supplies in particular. If you need to deal with bad/flakey utility power, put a UPS inline with your system. Amplifier circuits are more efficient now as well. If your house lights dim when you turn on a sound system, you re using way too much power. You can enjoy good sound without hastening climate change. 3. High frequency hearing degrades as we age. I used to test out at 21KHz, and how am lucky to get 16KHz. And don t trust "audio memory." I ve gone back to listen to recordings I thought were perfect, and now think they re junk. And that s after I had my ability to hear dog whistles taken away! > Why do you think subwoofers sell so well? It s because high frequency hearing and checking account balances are inversely proportional! 4. Horizontal integration is usually a good thing. Dolby) and then amortizing their R costs (plus a little profit) across an entire industry is an Moncler Men Armani Down Jacket Black efficient use of talent. Computer companies used to make their own disk drives, keyboards, etc. Getting away from that craziness helped everyone become more efficient (and interoperable). 5. It s time to throw away the past. There is NO reason for any button or display on the front of a receiver, other than a hard on/off button with a simple LED to say "I m on." Remote controls are where it s at, and even then, I d prefer a smartphone or tablet app. (More functionality, no need to read manuals, upgradable via an app store, etc.) This is one place where a single standard would help the industry, but, alas, I suspect it won t come to be for a long time. If smart and agile companies competed in receivers (think Google vs. Apple vs. Logitech vs. .), the rate of innovation would blow your ears back. 6. Speaker quality is the main determinant of sound quality. If you pay $1000 for a receiver, then you should pay $1500 for your front two speakers, and a few more $K for the center and surrounds. (It s a matter of taste how much you should spend on a display device.) Folks generally blow all their Moncler Kids Uk money on source equipment and receivers. Speaker price/performance got a bit better with the advent of internet direct sales (SVS, Hsu, et al), but I don t perceive huge improvements in the past decade or three. Display price/performance has been getting better at an astounding rate, however. And, no, you don t need to spend $1000 on speaker wire. 7. Headphones and in ear monitors are cool. If you have golden ears and a leaden checking account, you ll get the best sound from a great pair of cans. Point 1; Moncler Sale Outlet People still play vinyl. It s become a little more popular lately. Sounds like you may be a little out of the loop. Point 2; Power supplies have been basically eliminated from consumer units. The attempt to encourage fossil fuel efficiency is admirable, but inappropriate. Try joining a alternative energy development committee; you ll be too busy to worry about attempting to create a snotty connection between climate change and audio equipment. Point 3. It s all about midrange. Not much there over 16KHz for anyone to hear, whether you re 9 or 90. Subwoofers sell because people buy dinky monitor speakers to please the wife and home theatres. Point 4. Sounds like you like putting people out of work. Hope the economy doesn t get a little too efficient, you might lose your job and join the other 4 million. Point 5. Remote controls are usually not designed well, and are actually more difficult to use than simple dials and switches. If google and apple sold audio equipment, they d load them with unnecessary capabilities. Point 6. You actually sound terribly retro here. 30 year old speakers can sound good? You ve just destroyed your attempt to insult and degrade well aged audio equipment! Point 7. I agree, headphones are great inventions. Any idiot could have said that.
