BAD Presto. BAD!
Maybe a little humor is a way we can look at this never ending debate and avoid a lot of hostility.
A wise man I know always says "Never lose the ability to laugh at yourself.", which is a very popular mantra with me.
But hey, it was funny over on General, so why not here? :)
Then listening and/or analysing music together??
I may get a Nobel Peace Prize yet... or at least be crowned Asylum Nutcase of the Month...
There is some valid psychology here though. When you approach a subject with a light heart and poke more fun at yourself than at your opponent, well you could get eaten alive. But sometimes, when people see that you are disarmed and somewhat playful, they might decide you are fun to play with...
It's like a dog on his back begging for a belly rub. Even a larger and normally intimidating dog is somehow less imposing in that particular position...
So there is my advice. Next time you're in an audio room and the tension levels rise, just lay on your back on the floor and ask for a belly rub.

One thing we all agree on is music is the most important part of our hobby.

Much better technique than what I use which is to play something like mid-period Albert Ayler at earsplitting volume. It tends to bring people together in the form of screaming "TURN IT OFF!!!!". But it does tend to raise the tension level. :)
Whether we're buying equipment to listen to music, or buying music to listen to equipment (ha ha ha), in the end, we all need music and equipment! :o)
