Default Re: Audiophoolery?

A thought just occurred to me: How is being a hi-fi bore any different from being a real ale drinker? To anybody "outside the circle", beer is just beer and music just sounds like music.

But then, a pint of real ale doesn't cost any more (sometimes less!) than a pint of cold fizzy water with flavourings and ethanol (Your bias may be showing a little here -- Ed.), and there is a difference you can taste. When it comes to expense, ticking off beers on a chart is not in the same league as spending 100 on a few metres of fancy cable .....
