Is the hi-fi system obsolete?

Its moved to the TV. Logitec or one of the big manufacturers just came out with new speakers with a third speaker on top at a 45% angle. Merely by chirping the room the stereo can figure out all the echoes and provide true 3D sound so that, instead of surround sound, it can literally sound like someone is whispering in your ear or whatever.

What are you actually asking?

 

Hi fidelity vs low quality, or are those big arse 5 piece home speakers systems with 100m of wires obsolete

It's not obsolete at my house... but I've got a stash of vintage HiFi gear.

 

 

Short of some very high end stuff you can't buy HiFi gear anymore...

 

 

So while not quite "obsolete" HiFi is dead for the general public that think MP3 on their phone sounds "great".

I took my CD player to the tip when having my last spring clean. It was still in working order, but had not been used in years. These days , I copy straight on to the hard  drive of my laptop and then make back up copies elsewhere. I prefer listening to music with headphone that do not require a powerful amp.

Sometimes I do patch it through the guitar amp as every now and then you just need to crank it up

I used to have a big kenwood component system. I kind of miss the big old power amps that had simply 2 channels, bass, treble, loudness, and use an external EQ. I simply can't get the same rich sound from the dolby surround digitally equalized receivers. Anyway my Kenwood is long gone because my PC has been my main music player for the last 15 years at least. My current PC audio system cost me about $8 from thrift stores. Harman Kardon speakers and an Onkyo powered sub, sounds good enough for me to not bother with the component stereos much.
