I have a pretty decent sound system in my home office, but I rarely listen to it. Instead, I find myself just playing music through the iMac. It occurred to me that it could be because the stereo’s speakers are situated behind me. Maybe that’s what causes my “listener fatigue”.
To test this theory, I ordered a pair of Audioengine A2+ powered desktop speakers and it’s made all the difference.
I can now listen to music all day while sitting at my desk and never tire of it.
