1091 words - 5 pages

To learn to listen to music, not just hear it, you need the right room, the right equipment, the perfect volume, the perfect spot, and (of course), the embracing of the music. After you have all the proper tools, you can sit and enjoy the music. The first consideration is to listen to music in a comfortable chair. I would highly recommend a good quality Lazy Boy recliner. Now, you need to find the best room to put that chair in, so you can listen to you music. The room can be any normal room with four walls but, the room can't be wide open.

The receiver is a power source and a switchboard for your additional stereo components. Any receiver will do, as long as it has one-hundred watts per speaker out-put. Then, you need a compact disc player, a single or a five disc is fine. Some speaker wire is a must. Speakers on the other hand, are a tough choice because there are so many of them. You want to spend at least four-hundred dollars when buying speakers. Anything lower than four-hundred dollars is usually low quality, which can increase the risk of destroying your speakers. When you decide on three sets of speakers (one set equals two speakers) at you local speaker shop, have a salesman play some of your cd's that you brought with you. Make sure you listen to the same song per set of speakers. Also, bring different types; classical, jazz, blues, rap, and 80's; whatever. Forget what the salesman says. Just remember, your ears won't deceive you. Figure out what sounds the best to you, then slap your credit card down and lets' go home and listen to some music. After you've placed your speakers, hooked up your receiver, connected your compact disc player, and put your couch or music chair in the "full effect" spot in your family room, now you can turn on the receiver and compact disc player, and put in one of your favorite compact disc's. One problem; do not hit the play button yet. Sorry! You first need to make sure the volume is at its lowest point. Make sure the CD button on the receiver has been pushed. Now here's a little advice from a male. We males are supposed to know our remote controls, according to woman. So, if you're a woman who is reading this, you need to get to know your remote control(s). You need to memorize where the mute button is, and wh...
