Time to take PC sound seriously

I recently crossed a magic threshold, and the quality music playback on my desktop PC suddenly mattered. I think it’s because I’m using Pandora all of a sudden.

So I dragged in a couple of big old stereo speakers that were out in the garage and replaced the satellite speakers from my el cheapo PC-oriented amplifier/subwoofer/satellite speakers set. Works great!

If you ever wondered what the difference was between a “computer speaker” and a “stereo speaker,” the answer is, “None.”

There are an infinite number of additional steps I could take, but replacing the satellite speakers on a PC amp/subwoofer/speaker combo certainly gave plenty of improvement for practically no effort.

For me, music is especially important when I’m dragging myself through a task I don’t like, but if the sound quality is good and summoning up the music is painless, I listen to more. Commercials drive me away from FM radio stations in short order. With an instantly accessible personal music library and pretty-good commercial-free streaming music like Pandora, I find that I’m listening more.
