Which is exactly I do not consider myself an audiophile - from that comment right there. The first guy who snickers after responding to his question of "whatchya got"?

I spent the last 3hrs reading this thread and I was at a point of, hmm, maybe I am - because I do research. I can tell the difference between voodoo and fact ($2000.00/3m HDMI cable anyone?). So what I have a mass produced Onkyo? It fit my need, wallet, good reviews and sounds great. Eventually, as 8K UHD (dismissing 4K UHD for now) gets mass marketed, I'll get one of those too...and update all the components that go with it.

mass market is relative.

when I referred to mass market, I meant the headphones that come with your phone, Beats, BOSE, etc.
