Just listening to some various favourite music and the quality of the bass drew my attention. It was the quickness, definition and overall tone that grabbed my attention as I had previously heard some of these elsewhere. It was the overall realistic representation rather than the ultimate output level that most systems seem to emphasize. I think it’s something people have to hear for themselves in order to understand as words are just that. It seems that output and extension seem to be valued over realistic portrayal these days. How do you judge the realistic quality of bass response? I wonder if there are any specialty discs that give side by side bass demos specially on acoustic recordings. Not just music recordings. Any thoughts or suggestions on this approach?
