ARE AUDIOPHILES OVERLY SENSITIVE BY NATURE?FEELINGS AND OPINIONS?


I have been an audiophile the last 20 years for the last 5 years I have worked with Infigo Audio as my industry affiliation.  It’s been my experience in business and audio conversations that there are 2 areas that are interesting. When giving opinions many audiophiles try to come off smarter than the people they are talking to. Also in conflict resolution if you have disagreements they are more willing to go to extremes. Has anyone else experienced this.  Some seem like they can tell you what to do? How to post etc. which to me is crazy. Most of us are 30, 40, 50, 60,70 plus.  Thoughts everyone?

I'd say many "audiophiles" I've interacted with have been mostly unpleasant and miserable people.  There are many good ones obviously.  The Facebook groups have some of the most miserable ones I've ever seen.  Mostly the "measurements only matter" types.

Do you think that using all caps shows how important your subject matter is? Kinda relates to what you are asking?

I too own the Perspectives and had them upgraded to the graphene.

For me it was a great disappointment. I couldn't discern 

an increase in SQ that was worth the cost. Most disappointing. I'm

a big believer in what good  cables  can add to one's system. Power cable

upgrades cannot be underestimated. There is no lack of discussion about cables.

I have made countless cable changes over the years.

Many have been game changing and jaw dropping at different price levels. I now have a full loom of the highest end Townshend cables. These will be my forever cables. I highly recommend Cutious Technologies 

cable as well. There are so many great ones. Mad Scientist as well.

Many companies offer a generous audition/ return period. Cables, cables, cabes.
