I didn't read the link, but I'd like to throw in how much I hate the term "audiophile".
It may offend some who feel that they are an audiophile, but I don't think that anyone here (at least I hope not) is this kind of audiophile:
2. has a set of golden ears that can discern everything
3. pretty much duped into believing marketing and therefore believes that a great system should cost a great amount of money (see #1)
4. Dismisses everything that's not owned by him/her without hesistation
Case in point. An ad I see in a very well-known home audio/theater mag:
"If you can't hear the difference, you probably don't need these".
Should be re-arranged to:
"If you were the cool guy in high school and still believe that your money has any effect on your level of knowledge, then please, fork over your money and we'll give you some copper string with gold tassles on the end".
Think that about sums up my hatred for that god-awful term... or at least how marketing has spun it.
Sorry for the rant guys.
