Lesson Five: Reference
One of the most important things to do before completing your Hybrid Audio speaker installation is to get a reference for your future listening tests. To really know what a snare drum sounds like, you must go and listen to one, in person, live and un-amplified. There is no substitute for the visceral impact and emotion of live music. Nothing else in life can touch your soul the way music does. Whether it’s a 200-member orchestra or a four-piece fusion band, nothing compares to the phenomenon of live music.
Take this as Hybrid Audio’s official request: become a student of music and your mobile audio sound system will be better for it. We want nothing more than to know there are great sounding audio systems around the world using our products, and you’d make us all very proud if you became a student of music and learned its beauty and passion.
