Well, it's 45 years that I orbit around this HiFi universe.
Listening, playing music professionally, designing loudspeakers, changing my system's components.
Oh... all done quite lazily. So I did not usually even put my nose in the diatribes among various listening-and-reviewing ways fans. I liked to listen to my loved music with my system, and that was enough.
But yesterday I was struck by lightning (not new to what happened, to say the truth: these A-B comparisons had been a daily activity in my "HiFi life" in the 80s, but I had simply forgotten it)
I own, and I always liked it, a rear projection TV, a Sony KDS-55A2000 for maybe 5 years.
Yesterday I was installing a new TV for another room, LG 55LE8800 (local dimming, 200 Hz here in Europe, in US 240 Hz model 55LE8500 I think), and they were both in the same room.
Well, suddenly I decided to see what came out from a comparison. So I took an HDMI splitter and started the work.
Well, I could realize in a moment a full universe of things that I had never seen before from these two TVs when previously used individually.
And I would tell you: before saying the opposite, please TRY the same with audio products.
Loudspeakers ? Well, connect them to a switching unit and listen to them this way. And so on.
Of course there are many things to do before, like levels tuning and more. But I can say only this: T R Y.
And then lets meet again here and talk, with a good glass of something close to the keyboard :-)
