“In the great majority of cases, there is no original musical event that a record records or reproduces. Instead, each playing of a given record is an instance of something timeless. The original musical event never occurred; it exists, if it exists anywhere, outside history.”
— Evan Eisenberg, The Recording Angel (1986)
“Ultimately, therefore, it is perhaps best to just accept that live music and recorded music are two different phenomena… The recording engineer may be able to pin the butterfly to the disc, but it sure doesn’t fly anymore. For a recording to make the grade as a work of art, therefore, more is needed than merely darkly echoing the original event.”
— John Atkinson, Stereophile (Feb. 2010)
We should admit that the above assertions are right in some respect. However, we also know that there has been so many wonderful progresses in the high-end audio industry in “1986–2010.” Until today, several many attempts have already been done. We believe that we are getting closer to the real picture of real music. We are not too far from the real world of music. Convergence to absolute reality does matter in this field. We should destroy the tons of prototypes after the creation of Hemingway Cables. We don’t want to lose any single detail of the music.
- “God lives in the details.”
Over the past 10 years, many of our prototypes and plans were destroyed upon testing, but it was history itself that made us give birth to the Hemingway Series. Through Hemingway Cables, you can be closer to real music more than ever—guaranteed.
- A man can be destroyed but not defeated—- Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea (1951)
