What is Psychoacoustics?

Speakers and Psychoacoustics

If you want, you can spend over $100,000 for a pair of high end stereo speakers. The question is: Do these speakers sound better than a pair that cost $5000 or $500 ?

A large part of sound is psychoacoustic (the psychology of acoustical perception). Psychoacoustics is the subjective perception of sound versus the objective measurement of that sound by specialized test equipment. By its very nature, sound and audio reproduction is subjective. In other words, don't take someone else's word that a certain high end audio speaker is the best. Listen for yourself - in your own listening room, and compare it to live, acoustic music with voice.
