Acoustic Systems Hi-Fi
How do we characterize the sound of hi-fi? Most audio files are likely to say that we are trying to reproduce the sound as close as possible to the original. So if you close your eyes, you can imagine hearing a real sound.
The extent to which the actual sound can be approached depends not only on the quality of loudspeakers and electronics, but also on the fundamental limitations of the stereophone and multi-channel formats currently used. A good system in a good audition room is capable of creating an absolutely convincing illusion of the real sound. That was the effect that must have been achieved with a naturally recorded acoustic music.
We are trying to preserve the natural tone of instruments and votes, their relative location in the space, and to ensure the accuracy of reproduction in the broad dynamic range. It is easier to achieve this with camera ensembles and sylists when the audition room is not too different from the space in which the recording was made.
It's much more difficult to do with a big orchestra, because in this case, it would be necessary to create an illusion of the concert hall space in a very modest room. Of course, it must be borne in mind that sound recording engineers take this into account in their work. Therefore, when listening to classical and acoustic music with the acoustic systems of the "hi-fi " class, the main question we ask is " Is this sound real? "
For a studio recording rocks or pop music, the situation is a little different. The music is created in the sound recording studio, and its balance is achieved electronically, depending on how it sounds during reproduction through the monitors in the hardware studio. If the studio is designed correctly, the record that sounds well from the monitors of the hardware will sound as good as it does when replicating on the home audio system in the model room. Such records do not have the same reference sound as acoustic music. We believe that sound engineers create a reasonably balanced fonogram that will be correctly reproduced by a model domestic audio system. There is still a common desire to record sound sources as they sound naturally, for example... ♪
