I for one just like to stay informed of developments, and try not to judge too much. To each their own, and i understand (maybe should say share) the fear for constant Muzac around us, and people having earbuds 100% of their time, even when participating in traffic...
That being said there seem to be at least 2 developments of interest.
1- the technical enhancement of so called audiophile systems and
2- the development of our use of technique for our day to day activities concerning music (and much more). Which in fact is a more behavioral development.
These do not necessarily are the same, nor fight each other. There's a whole world in between. Maybe they are morphing to the same world in 10-20 years. Who knows.
The Active speakers Bryston is developing could be seen as a major development of the first, some would even consider Tidal/MQA. Others wouldn't obviously.... In any case i find myself to be fortunate to be able to enjoy best of both worlds and hope companies like Bryston stay here and develop for quality, and not so much for maximizing profit. Cause that could be another way ordering developments, not necessarily leading up to maximized quality...
I admit not a very informative post this is, still, I felt the need for complimenting Bryston on having this forum and let us all have our go.. Thanks for posting your thoughts! I really enjoy the imagination and knowledgeable posts.
