For me, the system is always the first consideration in any room I'm serious about.



Wayne is hardcore. Laughing

He brings up a good point though. The way houses are built, you kind of have to take that attitude if you want great sounds in your house. What we need are home builders that are also serious audiophiles.

But I am a substance over style kind of guy as well.

Sound Meter for Android is a good one. Five million downloads, a 4.7 average rating and it is good for measuring the decible levels of the traffic around you.

For me it was Elton John and the Stones. I still think Goats Head Soup was one of the more underrated albums of the 70's.

But why the longevity for most 70's music? Rock N Roll started in the 50's so the music and lyrics were still very basic. In the 60's they progressed and some bands really experimented with different sounds and styles. By the time the 70's got here, artists and bands had perfected the simplicity of the 50's and the experimentation of the 60's to get a more refined, polished and professional sound. The lyrics too had been more polished into a more personal experience for the listener.

I am biased though, because 70's music is what I started on.

Does anyone else find themselves doing this? I ran across a video on You Tube that was made in 1975 for a song called "House For Sale" by a band called Lucifer. I thought the imagry put in the video was a really good fit for the mood of the song. Meloncholy is a good way to describe it.

Do you think critiquing video's and songs helps you to narrow down what you really like?
