Controlling Sound Quality

If the experts on high-fidelity sound agree on one thing, it is that there is no exact scientific definition of a high-fidelity system. The limitations of the human ear and variations in human taste, room acoustics, system distortions, and ambient noise all contribute to this fundamental inconsistency of opinion.

High-fidelity stereos compensate by providing ways to improve the sound quality without changing the sound source. When you turn up the bass or treble on a stereo system, you are actually increasing the volume, or intensity, of certain frequencies while the music is playing. You are not actually changing the sound itself, just the way it is amplified and produced through speakers.
