Spoiled for Sound

Drove around in the Acura for a while to listen to The Beatles: Love DVD-Audio in its entirity; it was an almost mystical experience musically, a reintroduction to songs I thought I knew backwards and forwards. Then I came home and decided to listen to the same songs in the house.

First I tired the Sony system, a DVD/SACD system that only plays the standard compressed DVD-Video soundtrack. It seemed a bit lifeless and flat, so I went downstairs and used the Pioneer DVD-A/SACD system. Better, but still less than the Acura. It's sad but true: to hear music the way it was meant to be heard, I have to sit in my car.

Elliot L. Scheiner, the designer of Acura's sound system, has spoiled me for anything else. *sigh*
