Music is an indispensable part of my life. While working on the tasks for the LIFEBOOK4LIFE project, I decided to go ahead and test the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK UH572 for music playback performance based on the music I like to listen.
To see the audio features of the device, you can see its datasheet

There is direct reference to the sound processing features but not direct detailed references to the speakers itself. As Hi-Fi aficionados say, it is the loudspeakers, not the player or the amplifier. So the questions is:

All the tests are done with 70% volume set to avoid any distortion or problems caused bu potentially a high volume level recording.
I should note that the comments below might be too subjective as I have a different ear sensitivity. I am too sensitive to high pitch sounds.
The pieces were first listened on an Dell Latitude E6410 to ensure that they are useful choices. The selection below represents the music I listen to these days…
