I've lost touch with all audio magazines, webzines, etc.

I seem to be buying equipment that I read about ten years ago or longer (except for DACs, which I want to stay current). But, I'm concerned: What about the next ten years?

I would look at Tone Audio publications.

Let's be honest here: 99% of high end audio is utter bullshit. The only "high" you get is from whatever recreational drugs (alcohol is a drug) you've ingested. Virtually all you read here, or more so in a glossy magazine or its online equivalent, is just audio porn, advertising for horribly overpriced gear. But enjoy the high!

It's like a audiophile channel guide. Interesting.

Best regards, Ralph

I don't drink or do drugs and my system quite regularly gives me goose bumps. If the system does not do this it's gone or changed. After that it comes down to the recording quality.

That's my ultimate judgment, it works for me.

you sound disillusioned ... I believe that 'high end' synthesizes and sums different elements of 'art' as it were, together to make it greater than the whole ... the sound aspect being the most important part of those elements ... if you can afford it

high end sound can be achieved without the accoutrements of cabinetry - furniture excellence, architecture, and exterior hardware design at sane price points ... if you know what you're doing while being forgiving of visual appeal ... and it can alter a person's state of consciousness at least as profoundly as meditative techniques

overall I'm somewhat in agreement in spirit but arguing against the percentage you used and your dismissal of the meditative aspects

probably should have said that first and avoided some typing *shrug*

be well,


Thank you! nt, posted on October 25, 2020 at 12:39:01

Hi, 13th Duke of Wymbourne, I really appreciate you posting the link to The Audiophile Daily. It is a real treasure trove for a audio article junkie such as I. I am surprised I've never run across it before.
I dream of an America where a chicken can cross the road without having it's motives questioned.
