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. As a result, most high-fidelity systems offer ways to customize the sound for your ears and your listening environment.

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.
