London興起的listening club

Numerous listening clubs now invite people to experience recorded music played through hi-fi rigs that most humble audiophiles can only dream about.
The newest is Spiritland, a cafe-bar in central London that claims to offer “the best sound system in the world” — an imposing array that dominates the room like a shrine in a temple. Two sets of bulky yet elegant speakers finished in vintage wood sit on either side of an Italian amplifier with colorful valves and tubes that glow orange when the lights are low.
這不就是貓窩的音樂茶店點子嗎?
“I always wanted to go somewhere which could be all about musical appreciation, to hear someone dig really deeply into their record collection and explore their private passions,” 
同感啊~所以一直想辦個樂迷私人音樂會啊...

“In the big nightclubs, they spend thousands on interiors, toilets, whatever, but they have sound systems that distort all the time, and everyone thinks it’s normal to leave with your ears ringing.”
PA音響失真高實在也是沒辦法,必須能夠承受很大功率,又要極高靈敏度以發出大音壓,這就很難做得好。
