Some might argue that listening to Uriah Heep on anything is great. A lot of us probably started listening on crappy AM radios back in the 60s and 70s and we thought that were totally cool and groovy, man! But the days of vinyl and 8 track tapes are over and now that we are grown up, it is time for some high quality equipment.
Not surprisingly we seem to listen to music most often in our cars. Long commutes make our autos the perfect place to enjoy music. That having been said, Uriah Heep is not Hip-Hop. We aren’t looking for thunderous, overpowering thump in our system. Good bass response is a must, but it needs to be balanced properly to get the full range of music. You want it to sound like you are at a live Uriah Heep concert.
Cars are not the only mobile sound systems that count. Boating is a great way to relax and people love to listen to music as they cruise the waves. On a boat you need a waterproof type stereo and marine speakers that are impervious to rain and splashing. But all the same principles apply. You can get a waterproof subwoofer to make sure the low end is there in the music, but don’t forget to get your tweeters up high to preserve the sparkle in the music. You don’t want to miss any of those high operatic, Uriah Heep vocals!
When it comes to home stereo systems, many people are opting for a whole-home type setup. Speakers can be installed in a ceiling pointing down which gives the listener an unobstructed line of sight to the tweeter. That is a great position. Many people will integrate their audio listening along with the surround sound system attached to their TVs for a dual purpose setup.
