I doubt that I'm proof.

I took the screen name "Old Listener" because "Listener" was taken on AA. I am getting senior discounts but not for that long.

I first worked on recording and playing back audio about 1980. I wrote Windows kernel level s/w (drivers and other stuff) for audio and video in the late 90s. I knew then that I was going to computer based audio when hard drive capacities got big enough and prices low enough. (I had decided on using lossless formats rather than lossy formats. That delayed my start.)

I could transfer what I knew about user interfaces and relational databases to analyzing the functionality and operation that I wanted. By late 2005, hard drives were marginally adequate, I knew what I wanted from a system and I was ready to do my consumer research on available hardware and software and get started.

I don't think that my experience would be that typical of most "old" audiophiles coming to computer audio.
