Default Audiophiles!

I'm doing some research on audiophiles, and would love to know what makes you guys tick...how did you get into this? what products do you love? what keeps you going?

Would you be willing to do a simple, fun journal for me over the weekend? It would probably take about 1 dedicated hour, and I’ll be happy to offer you $50 for the effort. In addition, the owner of the best journal will win an additional $50, and there are only 3 other people who would be competing with you on that! Don't worry - this journal will not be used for any weird, commercial purpose, just academics.
Please let me know if you're interested (jillml@gmail.com)...

Don't know if you'll find too many 'audiophiles' here. Perhaps over at Audio Asylum. Plenty of 'audiophools' there...

Interesting research It's more or less the same thing if you would investigate religion or politics.

My definition:

Audiophile: 95% physics, 5% spirit/soul/whatever you call it
Audiophool: 5% physics, 95% metaphysics
diyAudiophile: 100% people who know 95% of audiophile stuff is priced extortionately

Yep.
Plenty there as well who read the general design book, and then spread the word pretending to be an architect too.

Add AudioPhuckups to the list : 95 % quoting The Self, 5 % garbage they think up ThemSelves.
Come on, i'll make you swallow the holy device.

Hey jml736

I'll relax on your couch for US$5'000.

You ask, I'll deny.
