WHAT IS HIGH FIDELITY AUDIO
There is music – then there is real music! By definition Hi-Fi Sound System or High Fidelity Audio is the output of music sound through high-fidelity equipment and high fi speakers so as to produce an undistorted sound as though you were hearing the original. It is the control through equipment and media producing playback with inaudible noise and distortion at a flat frequency response within the capability of the human hearing range.
Composed of 2-channel audio, your sound is processed through the media player, receiver / amplifiers and out the speakers. True high fidelity audio draws the listener into the experience of being surrounded with sound as though in the presence of the original artistic production. Each note from each instrument, undistorted, engulfs the listener into the experience of the music which is much different than just listening to music.
That is worthy of repeating. High fidelity audio is an experience. When a listener has been in that experience other media just becomes noise.
WHY IS IT CALLED HIGH FIDELITY
High fidelity audio systems by design extends outside of the limitations of other media delivery methods. The design functionality is to bypass compressed audio and thereby receiving as much of the original detail as possible from the media source. Conventional media delivery is limited in most cases by the delivery methods themselves. Radio, television, streaming music and video are all subject to the delivery methods, in most cases bandwidth. The concept to using compression makes for a smaller delivery package and smaller use of media resources. In some cases the media platform itself may be limited as to its ability to hold the reproduced sound recording.
Streaming music and video is the fastest growing media platform to date and its own popularity creates its limitations. Everyone wants the bandwidth. Mix the presentation of this media source with the limited capability of lesser equipment and speakers and it becomes the same problem as trying to amplify an already poor signal. The result is just louder static!
It is called high fidelity because the focus is on all four parts of the sound reproduction.
Media Source – As mentioned the popular platform today is streaming, but a true music connoisseur is much aware of the delivery quality of a variety of sources. Collectors of phonograph records, compact discs and in some cases uncompressed or lossless digital audio files know the value of their collection and the extremes they go to in order to protect the source material.
Electronic Delivery – The equipment that takes the media and converts it to sound output. If anyone has ever listened to the ancient but once popular transistor radio it can be easily understood that the delivery method is crucial to the sound experience.
