Some home truths
Some big time equipment makers and hi fi magazines will advise you to spend the most on the speakers After all, they ultimately produce the sound. A few may imply that all amplifiers are the similar, their specs seem to be the same so why spend on expensive amplifiers? And why bother about cables or connectors ?
The truth of audio is that if the signal isn't good at the beginning of the reproduction chain, nothing downstream can ever improve it. In fact, the signal will only be degraded by any product it flows through right down to the connector. High-end audio equipment simply minimizes that degradation. If your CD Player, DAC or music server is flat, shrill or lowquality, the final sound will be flat, shrill, or low.
In any integrated equipment solution the total system's performance is limited by the resolution of the lowest quality component in the signal flow. Great speakers, an excellent turntable and cartridge are of little value with a poor quality Amplifier in the signal chain. High end speakers could show the imperfections of the electronics upstream of them. Amplifiers and source components therefore are equally important. Quality matching of components is essential to getting the best sound for your budget.
Hence, quality source components, good electronics and excellent cables which are all matched, are essential to realizing the best system.
