The first question people always ask me when they find out how much sound equipment I have is,
ďWhy?? Why do you have all this equipment?Ē Well, Iím not a DJ. I donít own a dance club or
a bar or anything. Itís basically just a hobby. Some people collect stamps or coins, I like
sound equipment. Thatís all there is to it really. It all started when my basic home stereo
system just didnít seem to sound as good as I wanted it to, at the volume levels that I liked
to listen to it at. Well after a little research I quickly discovered that distortion is
usually caused when people try to drive their stereo system louder than it was designed for.
In other words the system doesnít have enough power to produce the volume levels they are
trying to achieve. So the obvious answer was (no, not turn it down) to buy a more powerful
amplifier. So I went down to the local music store that sold professional audio equipment
and bought the biggest amp they had in stock. I figured 2000 watts RMS should do it.
Needless to say that was a major improvement over the 100 watts that my old home stereo
receiver produced. Distortion was a thing of the past, but now the problem seemed to be
I had too much power and the speakers were overheating. So back to the music store for
a set of professional speakers that could handle the power produced by the professional
amplifier I had bought. Well one thing led to another and I seemed to develop this
unquenchable thirst to make my sound system as loud as possible while still maintaining the
highest level of sound quality. So countless trips to that local music store and about
$13,050 later, I have everything you see here. ďIs 7800 watts of amplification enough?Ē
Well........ Iím sure I can get it sounding better, all I need now is................
