Video: Can Audiophiles Define Audio Nirvana?

 

  Emiko, a.k.a. ThatHiFiGirl and eCoustics (one of Enjoy the Music.com's online partners) have joined together on a new video series aiming to connect with the next generation of music lovers, audiophiles and hi-fi enthusiasts. Our goal is to inform, entertain and attract an entirely new audience that appreciates music, but is not quite sure how to begin its journey.

If you're old enough you might remember the ad slogan, "Is it live, or is it Memorex?" The 1972 ad campaign for Memorex cassette tapes featured The First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald singing a high note that could shatter a goblet — once during a live performance and again when played back via Memorex tape.

 

 

Is it hearing what the artist intended?

In this video, Emiko explains why these questions are difficult to answer, much less define.

Makes you wonder, in the pursuit of high fidelity sound, if there is an end game?

 

 

Or maybe Lady Ella was right all along. Perhaps it's all about not being able to tell the difference between live and recorded music. If that's the case, we still have a long way to go.

Let us know in the comments, what is your definition of audio nirvana?

You don't have to be an audiophile to answer.
