As a newcomer to the world of "good quality" sound, let me make sure I understand the variables that would go into creating a perfect sound in one's home....
Source- I would assume that some types of digital encoding is better than others. We no longer have to contend with scratchy records, 8 track tapes or warn-out cassettes, but is what digital sounds are better ?
Amplification- so the reciever and/or amplifier can create distortions and lower sound quality, or over or underpower the speakers. What are the properties of a receiver/amplifier that make the sound quality better?
Speakers-reproduction of digital codes into sound that the ear can define. Seems like speakers can be of inferior quality, be provided inferior power or signal.
Environmental factors- floors, ceiling and wall, barriers, size of room, etc.
