#SoCS – Wired for sound


I don’t know if it’s old-fashioned thinking or if there’s anything to it any more, but I’ve always been a great believer in physical connection where sound is concerned.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, it won’t surprise you that I love vinyl records. Computer-generated sound can’t compare to the literal depth of a needle riding the grooves of a vinyl disc.

But what about wires as opposed to wireless? Surely the connection, without physical contact, can be interfered with. Having said that, if speaker wires are frayed or dusty or missing, that can cause as much of a problem as any imagined interference in the airwaves.

I lament the day in the future when my old-fashioned stereo breaks and can’t be fixed. Not that I use it these days as much as I wish I could.

Yet, to get back to the wireless thing, I’m sitting here on my wireless internet connection with my wireless house phone (landline) sitting beside me and my wireless cell phone in my pocket. And none of those interfere with one another.

I’m probably just old-fashioned.

  2. I love records — no longer own any, but love them all the same.
    I also loved giant speakers, which now you only see at live music gigs — but oh, when I was a kid, the cat and I would lie next to the giant speakers and chilllll.
    Good post, Linda. Made me feel all nostalgic and whatnot 🙂

  5. Nothing beats vinyl. We’re pretty much at the point where wireless is as good as wired for network access. The speed is almost as good and the convenience is sweet.

  6. Nothing beats that sound of the needle being placed in an album. Nothing!
