Hi all. Sorry for the delay in replying. Been moving house. Of course I know everyone here listens to music, but obviously you listen to it in ways that most people – who are now content with airpods and single Sonos speakers do not bother with. I'm interested in how we got to a world where most people think that is acceptable, and in talking to people who won't settle for that. I posted in DIY because it seemed to me that people who were building and customising their own systems were probably particularly concerned with getting sound to their liking. As I say, I am not looking to write a mocking piece – I want t know why sound particularly matters and, if possible, to hear someone's system. M
Hi. I'm a music writer, and I'm working on a piece about what sound really means in an age when most people have reverted to listening to their music in mono, through bluetooth or Sonos speakers, or on ear buds. I'm hoping to find someone with a wildly high-spec system (preferably their own listening room). i'm in London, and would love to come to visit you. So somewhere in the south east would be great. The piece isn't about audiphiles, so much as sound itself – I'm not writing a "look at these eccentrics" piece – and you can Google me to check I really am a journalist. Feel free to email me if you're interested in talking to me: email@example.com. Many thanks, Michael
