New Fidelity

On a recent visit to my local hi-fi emporium, it has become increasingly clear that the state of hi fidelity audio systems is in the midst of an identity crisis. It use to be that you would bring your favorite recording media with you and experiment with this music until you found what you were looking for. While auditioning a number of candidate speaker replacements, my cell phone served as the audio source and it was connected to various systems using differing techniques.
