The more I was able to hear, the more I was able to connect with the performance and heart of what was playing.
It was exposure to many kinds of music, language and film created a desire to share new discoveries with just about anyone who would listen. I learned quickly that others connect with content when it is played back on better equipment. The better the gear, more synergistic the system and set up, the more readily people connect with music they had never given a chance before. This is the real reason we need high end gear.
In high school, buying a stereo turned out to be a life changing experience. The salesman showed me respect and took the time to make we really work on educating my ear even further. It was that single person who made the difference.
