But if the objective point of veiw is the only correct veiw for you, than don't bother trying anything that could be better. The thing that bothers me is if someone enjoys their high-end amp more than a good enough receiver or budget pro amp, then some objectivist think they must be riddled with bias, placebo or delusional. Maybe they think the "better sounding" amplifiers must have a skewed frequency response or causes pretty distortions. The objectivist always knowing they are "right", feel they need to educate the poor suckers who fell into that dreaded high-end trap.
Oh well the high end is a hobby just like cars or watches for some people
If all you need is to get from point A to point B you don't need a Bugatti a Corola will do
1. Bugatti Veyron Super Sports $2,400,000
This is by far the most expensive street legal production car available on the market today (the base Veyron costs $1,700,000). Capable of reaching 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds, the Veyron is the fastest street legal car when tested again on July 10, 2010 with the 2010 Super Sport Version reaching a top speed of 267 mph. When competing against a Bugatti Veyron, you better be prepared!
Same with watches if al you need is to tell time a $5 watch will work as well as your
Chopard 201-Carat Watch
Price: $25 million
