Did you know that the audio you listen to is never playing as intended? Well, unless you’re making an effort to get the most out of your sound, that is. When music is recorded, it is mixed and mastered by a sound engineer whose job it is to make sure that the end product is such that it sounds the best to our ears. Now, whatever you use to play your music on top of that original recording is going to have some kind of an effect on what you hear.
Naturally, lower quality headphones and music players (such as our phones, being completely honest) won’t get the most out of your audio, no matter how a high a bit rate you downloaded it in. Some music players use hardware that you can use to tweak your sound till it suits your ears the best but even then you’re still within the realm of a digital recording which can only have a certain amount of audio data that you can play around with.
Now if you’re at home, you could be listening to your music on a high end record player that can get the most out of that original recording of your favourite music. Turn tables aren’t very cheap to buy but if you consider yourself to be an audiophile, then it’s been on your bucket list for the longest time. You can find the best all in one record player in your budget.
Nowadays, you can turn tables with all the bells and whistles that come with high end audio equipment so there’s no reason to go looking for an antique one unless you intend on keeping it for show purposes only
