Unsound vision : Comments

By Ian Nance, published 30/12/2013

For most of us TV is about vision, but it's also about sound as well: a view of the not so visible side of TV.

Ian, your hearing is obviously acute, but are you brain dead? The content of most TV is an insult; that is, if you can understand the attractive ladies who speak through their noses, or the usual muttering. It's not a volume control, but old fashioned voice training that should be the first remedial measure.

god! Three ages devoted to TV.

Most TV is about the lowest form of entertainment , un- watchable for most part and sheer "pap". Best quality of sound that is deserving of this stuff is in the 200Hz to 3.0kHz band with a max of 5% THD.

<<These days, television is a substantial part of our lives.>>

So was booze, for centuries and unfortunately it still is.

So please speak for yourself - it's not part of my life, I don't have any.

Interesting article Ian

Always good to know how our emotions are influenced by TV music.

Don't worry about that bloke Leslie.

Hi Ian,

Like most of the posters before me I canít agree with you. Our TV is used very selectively for entertainment, perhaps six shows in a week. The rest of the time it is used for movies or special interest stuff from the internet to a media server.

For news I use the internet and on-line media subscriptions, I abandoned ABC/SBS about five years ago. Free TV is great value, it costs nothing and thatís what itís worth, nothing.

My priorities are books via Amazon, internet, movies and lastly TV.

I bought a book called Aristotleís Rhetoric a few months back, I paid 87c for it. Donít you find it a little curious that we fought to prevent such books being burnt a few hundred years ago, now you can get them for 87c and delivered in about 15 seconds?

Things they are a changiní

Hi spindoc

Even more useful than Amazon for getting the best mail order book price is http://booko.com.au/ . Just enter the book title and Booko tells you whether Amazon, Abebooks, Book Depository etc sells the book and which offers the best price.

Cheers

Pete
