Default I lost my bobinga wood coasters...

I would just restate that giving budding audiophiles and DIY'ers the impression that they need to buy hundreds of dollars worth of "exotic" parts, or place their cd player on top of exotic animal hides, is DOING THE HOBBY A GRAVE DISSERVICE.

How many times have you heard them say 'if only they could afford the SuperDooperExpensive 5000ex-300B...'? They are no better than the person who knows nothing about gear and dreams of the Sony he will some day be able to mortgage his house for.

We are part of a long wonderful tradition of home electronics builders. This tradition is about building the best amp you've ever heard for $200, and avoiding the marketing ploys of corporations.

The definition of an engineer is "build for $50 what any idiot can build for $500."

The definition of an engineer is "build for $50 what any idiot can build for $500." The definition of an audiofool....er audiophile is "build for $500 what any reasonal person can build for $50."

Fellows,

The ideal friend for an audiophile would then be an engineer foolish enough to build him that 500USD amp?

Grrrr

Cheers,

Unhappy Hey!some of my best friends are audiophiles......

"The ideal friend for an audiophile would then be an engineer foolish enough to build him that 500USD amp?"


Damn........ thought it was just my winning personality. I hope your happy! This doesn't have anything to do with beef by product necklaces, children,and dogs does it. I never could figure out why I was the only child who parents told him TO play with his food. Better put it my agenda list for the trip to the therapist next week.
