    Default Hello, I have already posted a few things, but, again, Hello

    This forum seems to be rather sane and civil. Maybe it is the classical music which does it, but its difference with other less esoteric ways of communication on other fora is both welcome and wholesome.

    My name is David Lyga and I live in Philadelphia, City of Brotherly ---- (you fill in the rest, even though it might not fit the common parlance.

    OK, I am going to hijack this thread by stating that when I listen to classical music I like to do two things which are considered rather oblique and different. First, I like to have the treble highest and the bass off (did I say that correctly?) In other words, I like ALL to be revealed and these settings, unfortunately and necessarily, allow even the nasty pops on LPs to manifest, although the whole of the presentation is, nevertheless, best revealed in this manner. Of course, the cover of the speaker is removed in order to further facilitate this.

    Second, I do not like stereo. What I do on my turntable set up (Yes, LPs) is that I wire ONE good speaker with both channels. To me, an orchestra is ONE giant speaker and that is what I wish to behold, not an amalgam of spacial channels which, to me at least, seem rather spatially contrived and not genuine.

    I wish everyone his/her own method of listening to be able to manifest, without regard for the desires of others' 'need' to point to a correct 'way'. We have our own dossier of perceptions which need to be hewn to our own liking and understanding.

    Even though I am brand new, I already feel very comfortable. Real people seem to be present here, prescient with regard to good music, and pre-eminently civil to all. I wish all of us the best with both imparting our own aesthetics and commiseration with viewpoints which are different, thus not understandable, to one's own. Thus, in this way we learn, (even though David Lyga still cannot get his damn head into Mahler's second symphony). - David

    Once more welcome to Talk Classical David.

    This forum seems to be rather sane and civil.
    As I like to say to new members: It's mostly harmless.

    Enjoy it!

    I don't mind stereo, but the fact is most of my listening is by MP3 player and in mono because I don't like to have both ears disengaged from the world. So I use this handy earbud which has electronics to combine the channels and avoid feedback of one channel into the other channel's input, which I am told can be a bad thing.

    The main advantage to two speakers with earbuds or head phones is it puts the music seemingly inside your head. For me with the one-bud, it is on my left side.

    Welcome to TC.

    Try reading the thread’ Do you believe In greatness in music?’ And see if you still think we are sane and civil!

    Btw welcome.
