Umm Ya, cuz I would have to have a magic wand shoved up my ass to afford them.


Upon reflection, the above statement is a bit odd. But, it sounded right in my head.

I get a charge out of the cable booths, and everyone states in their setup what cables were used to connect their gear.
I'm going to purchase some booth space, set up my gear, and state it connected with coat hangers. Also, i'll demonstrate a CD transport ($6,500.00), hand crank driven, not belt.

Just got done drooling over the Can Jam gear, which leaves little doubt in my mind, some people have lost theirs.

Yeah, I think headphone folks may actually be more insane in general than speaker audiophiles...

Actually, I better understand why the headphone guys behave as they do. The nature of that format removes so many of the variables that small differences are easier to hear. The speaker/cable/amp/pre nuts are the ones I can't get my head around.

Lets talk loans.

As with many things, the law of demishing returns come into play, and dollar amounts aren't incrimentally related to improved sound quality, but more the the Jones.

There's little doubt that HPs are more intimate, accurate and revealing than traditional speakers. If I had lots of FU money, I'd dive into the HP rabbit hole head first.
