At what price is one considered an Audiophile.

Audiophilia, what is is it?

Is it the love of music or the equipment that presents the music.

Or is it both? 

What is the cost of admission?

How much does one have to spend on equipment to be considered an Audiophile, if it is truly the later than the music.

What has membership to this perceived exclusive club cost you?




I am flabbergasted by the association of being audiophile, as a possible positive quality, is reduced to the highest gear price tag by most it seems...

Acoustics rule the gear not the reverse...

Being audiophile is not purchasing gear, it is LEARNING how to embed it acoustically because music experience matter , it matter over the specific attributed "sound" of an unplugged amplifier by virtue of his branded name and design and price ...

@2psyop why would you make such an assertion? Is that common in these parts? Is one born into this place? Is this the promised land?  Honestly I really could care less if @bigtwin spent $500k on his system, I wanted to see what you all would answer. These answers tell a lot about this place and who is who and what is what being the new kid here. Guess I will mosey on to the next question, or forum. Hostile here. 

Jacob, it's not really hostile here, it's more boring than hostile, in fact.
