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.  



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". 

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

@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.



We simply have differing perspectives regarding what you dismiss as "semantics".
