Now THAT'S funny!
I discovered his writing long after the Fourier incident and found his views humorous. I guess he was trying to be serious. Either way, I read as much of his stuff as I could find, knowing that the polar opposite of his views was usually the right path. It's not easy finding someone that you can count on with that level of regularity.

Ah, the right path, insha'Allah.
Did you ever end up selling any of your prized guitars so you could buy a pair of Linkwitz Orions (Aczel's favorite speakers)? :-)
I thought his favorite speakers were the Fourier! :)
Nope, still have the guitars. My audiophile-dom has gone bye-bye, for the last 3-4 years or so. I'd rather have the guitars and new music than the next great preamp.
Clackers... there is no substitute! And speaking of Butterfield, I just ordered the "Got a mind to give up living" live CD. Try playing THAT on an audiophile rig! But that's a case in point - my music search is leading me to more bootleggy recordings, and my excellent recordings sound just excellent on my current system. ;)

I should clarify. I make zero apologies for providing a link to a post whose thread contains posts by someone you don't like.
Although I was ribbing kerr, there's also some really good observations in his post. Among other things, he's completely aware of his own shifting perceptions with time (AKA "break-in"). As such, he's much more self-aware than the majority of the subjectivist camp, who assert their subjective experiences as objective reality.
I wasn't paying attention to that, as you can probably guess.
We used to rib each other about this sort of stuff all the time.
