    I’ve been busy these last years, building a system I feel confident about to enjoy the music contained in my records on. I think I might be there. It won’t be the most high-end you’ve heard of but it should be visible on my profile. I hope others can enjoy music through good well chosen components the way I have.

    Agreed. Too many people get hung up on if their system is good enough. If you enjoy it then its good enough.

    Of Systems that lean towards studio monitor-type sound it’s often said they’re ‘bright’ or ‘forward’ sounding. Isn’t that just an artefact of revealing a culture in sound recording Towards the end of the last millennium And beyond of ‘Radio-friendly’ ie treble-heavy masterings?

    I’m biased but I think when Meridian made the 209 they made the Hifi remote right

    My current speakers are designed as monitors. I like them better than many recordings.

    Possibly, but it has to do with the quality of playback electronics as well as those used in the studio. Lp records from the '70s can sound a bit thin and the more capable gear from that era could bring out a more balanced sound from it. Many products from that same era had a grainy, hard edged sound to it which was imparted onto the playback of the recordings. So system matching was and is important to get the best results there.
