Hobbyists are allowed to talk drivel.
Professionals are not.

"Audiophiles" usually haven't got a clue what they are on about, but feel qualified to come out with loads of rubbish.
You have to get over this mysogenistic stereo-typed speel.

I know of many many absolute TOP audio engineers working in studios all over the world that are women. I employed one,as a student, one year doing a major music festival, and she was pretty competent.
(Elsa) was also French and quite pretty, but that had no bearing on it.
She earns her living in audio today.

A guy running one of the best studios I know in London defers to the opinion of his wife when she can hear when something is sub par, or simply fantastic.

I respect women's hearing immensely, plus I happen to have gifted daughters.

What hearing sensitivity they have to me, is a constant source of amazement, and they don't need some old fogeys to tell them what is good sound v bad.

Still "there are virtually no female audiophiles" is valid. BTW it is not my remark but I have the same experiences.

Exceptions apparently make the rule

4) takes the veils off

I have a case I want to use, connectors and transformers and electrical components I can use.

Warning: when you see my finished DAC you will want to throw your DAC in thrash
Wrong thread?

Extreme_Boky, please please don't pay the original poster any effort or attention. The questions raised have been irrational and nonsensical, and all of the helpful answers from various respondents have been ignored/overlooked.
