The Stereo Stage

Unfortunately, physics doesn´t allow for a zero-loss transfer of recorded music signals. Weak sound signals reach the listener somewhat mitigated, if at all. The better the sound system, the less these weak signals dwindle. And you can hear that. Imagine hearing a “sound stage” – a kind of virtual sound arena, if you like.

CD – Sound Improvement With A Three-Cornered File

cd tuning with file

It was in 1998 when the specialised press reported interesting CD tuning possiblities. According to such, you just needed to adjust the CD edge to a certain angle in order to considerably improve it´s sound performance. Ultimately we still use methods from back then, in order to ensure that readings taken from a CD´s digital audio information fundamentally transfer without interfence.

It goes without saying that digital music signals have to be channelled through network components. To date, computer components were hardly ever regarded as favourable from an audio perspective.
