Are Expensive Speakers Worth the $$$?

Episode 1823 (1:58:40)

Scott from Ventura, CA
HiFi

Scott wants to know if expensive analog speakers and turntables are worth the money. Leo says that they may or may not. Oftentimes, they look better than they sound. But analog speakers will sound "warmer," which may be ideal if he's got a great vinyl collection. Then again, if he's older, the money he's paying for audio quality may be lost due to hearing loss. Especially if listening with hearing aids. Hearing aids aren't designed for HiFi sound. They're designed for talking. But Leo says that HiFi hearing aids may be coming soon since hearing aids are about to become over the counter.  He can also adjust an amp to play the best within his range of hearing.

Get some good headphones instead.
