of the time gave no respect whatsoever to the many super excellent pieces that Pioneer produced.
Severius! Supremus Invictus
It's even sadder that the mainstream audio industry has taken "gimmick technology," marketed it to the masses, and dumbed down the listening experience for just about everyone outside the high-end audio community.....
When I was in high school, most people knew what a good phono cartridge was..... Nowadays, we'd be lucky to find one such individual in an entire high school.
To be fair, I didn't give a shit about quality audio in high school either. The music I was listening to didn't give a shit ether. (1980's)
I caught the audiophile bug in high school in the late 1970s. While I was in high school, fellow students at my high school (El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills, CA) openly discussed audio between classes. And often hung out at the Federated Group store. (They even bashed Radio Shack gear, like audiophiles bashed Bose.)
In college in early 1980s (Case Western Reserve Univ., Cleveland), dorm students often had "stereo wars" (coined from "Star Wars"- The original movie came out in the late 1970s).... I personally didn't have the budget other students had, and started "tweaking" gear to "keep up". A fellow college mate actually got mad at me for doctoring a turntable that he sold me. Another dorm resident showed off his system by blasting the "helicopter" track from Pink Floyd's "The Wall" out the 4th floor window to students walking below......
