Listening Pleasure and Emotional Content

Listening to music seems like such a simple activity, doesn’t it? Sit back, relax, and let the tunes carry you away. At least that’s how it should be.

Unfortunately, after about an hour or less of this “listening” session, we turn the music off to check out what’s on HBO. Does any of this sound familiar? Experienced exactly what I just described a few times?

Wouldn’t it be cool if, when we sat down to listen, time would just escape us, only to realize suddenly it’s nearly midnight and we had better get to bed, cause we’ve got to go to work in the morning, but just after a few more pieces of music?

This kind of emotional involvement in the music, this losing track of time because it’s just so relaxing, this total “drowning” in the message of the music the artists are conveying, is possible with optimal speaker placement and speaker positioning. Then, and only then, do the speakers work as a unified system, they no longer battle each other, they work with the room, they convey a sense of space and ambiance well beyond the boundaries of not just the speakers, but of the room itself. The music then becomes what it is meant to be – an emotional and physical experience. It borders on the surreal, maybe because it’s so real.When speaker placement and speaker positioning are optimal, there is a more natural presentation of the music. This produces better stereo imaging, improved sound, and a better listening experience. The annoyance and boredom disappear. After proper placement and positioning of the speakers, the sound will seem to come from the entire expanse of the wall behind your speakers, and if you point to specific instruments or singers you hear, they will be well beyond the boundaries set by the speakers. It adds so much listening pleasure to the time you alott to music.
