What are the sound qualities of a system that best helps you to engage and connect you with music? Can they be identified and are they hand in hand with what audiophiles look for in a system? Does your system do this? For starters it depends on the music and the mood. Sometimes I want an energetic up beat mood and the high dynamics help me really get into it. Dynamics help me connect with the music. At other times I just want a more relaxing easy going mood and the big dynamics are too intrusive, so they can also disrupt the connection. What else?
