General audio topics that don't fit into specific categories.


And there in lies the problem, at least for me.

It's not easy getting to hear enough gear to even know what's available much less make a decision on what you like. I think the biggest detriment to me getting off to a good start in this hobby was lack of dealers selling equipment I liked.

Yea there were plenty of shops around selling "recommended" or highly touted components but really not any shops around selling the kind of gear I would have fallen head over heals to own - and whats really sad is there still isn't. It's too easy to imagine, based on what one has read about something, whether or not one will appreciate the sound of certain components or kinds of systems. But until you've been around long enough you really don't know unless you get real lucky and have the appropriate dealer or an audiophile friend who shares your taste.

Way too much diversity and lack of specialization amongst dealers makes it real hard for audiophiles to find an appropriate niche.

Yea, yea it all can be "good", all that means is that everything is mediocre - good is just not good enough.

Give me rhythm or give me death!
