Garbled question about, 'Getting used to sound'. Answered
I almost didn't post this because it seems so stupid but ....
A guy who has just started at working with me said that he was thinking of getting a valve amp for his music system.
The reason being that he had been told by a BBC sound engineer that, ' The trouble with digital sound is that you get used to the volume.'
He then went on to explain that he used to listen to his music at -50dB but he's noticed that he now prefers -70dB.
He was using the phrase, ' digital sound', so I don't know if he's comparing valve amps to solid state or what ?, and I don't know if he knows; But whatever he means by, 'digital sound', he is comparing it to and believes it can be bettered by a valve amp.
I said that I didn't believe in this getting, 'getting used to the sound', phenomenon but that I would ask someone who did ... one of you.
So, sorry for this garbled ill informed question, but if you can make any sense of it please answer so that I've got something to talk about when I next see him.
