Audiophilia: Is it the pursuit of audio excellence or just a desire to tinker.

So my wife made this observation after I spent a couple hours fiddle farting with cables, connections and speaker placements. She said is this hobby/obsession your desire for audio excellence, or just you like tinkering with stuff, tweaking your system and feeding your OCD? 

She said you try this and try that and guess what it all sound the same to me. She really knows me and my OCD. 

Enjoy your Sunday.  


It is not that i can pick up a mole at 50 yards... It is not true... 😊 You mock me or over estimate me .... In the two case i like your humoristic way to say it ...

Learning a bit more dont make you better than others for spotting mole at some distance ...

It is the fact that i did not pursuit my tail confusing it with a mole near me ... I did not confuse playing at random and tinkering with solving problems at some moment in my journey, lately Alas! ...I did not confuse the price tag of the gun with the identification of the mole ...And my goal was enjoying a meal made of this mole not playing with a costly gun ...😊


@mahgister can pick up a mole at 50 yards.





Until I retired, I never had an hour a day to sit uninterrupted and listen! Now it is become a habit. Long story, but I just received a new set of speakers and they are slowly breaking in and of course I am fiddling with their positioning. 


While you may view it as "both", the fact is, you chose to frame the topic as an "either or".

@stuartk No Christy my wife framed it that way. I know semantics but I do see it as both also. Okay break is over. 

Tinkering is kind of fun but I don't have the electrical knowledge or experience to do it seriously.
