Music has long remained a form of art which provides an element of entertainment through the use of musical instruments and lyrics. While music was restricted to a single form within Ancient Greece, there are numerous genres available within modern day life which is based upon unique concepts of what is defined as music. Various cultures and social contexts differ in their perception and valuation of music, which to some is an integral component of their way of life. Each genre, whether it is pop, rock and roll or trance, are based upon their own form of art which provides different sounds and words for people to listen to and immerse themselves within.
Listening to music can be utilised through a number of purposes on a daily basis to provide a form of enjoyable entertainment or background sound. People formulate their own taste in music through listening to a variety of genres which can contribute towards discovering particular artists or types of music that generate personal enjoyment. Music can be listened to through a single or multi-format system, whether it is an mp3 player, computer or hi-fi system, which plays songs are variable volumes and frequencies.
Playing music through a speaker system at loud volumes or to produce ambient background music during a social gathering requires high end speaker cables to produce the best quality sound. The quality of hifi speaker cables ultimately determines output efficiency and frequency levels that effectively determine sound quality.
Using average or inadequate cables between a speaker system and music player can decrease the overall ambience experienced from music entertainment as it can distort and alter sound output. This is particularly the case for people who outlay considerable expenditure on a high quality speaker system, only to not utilise its superior sound qualities through a power cable that fails to transmit playback quality that music deserves.
