Well, first you have to start a thread and ask all of the necessary questions, such as;
How will the changed light affect my audiophile equipment?
What wavelengths will enhance my audiophile experience?
Should I aim for lower Wattage bulb so that the mains is less stressed?
And many other absolutely necessary "relevant" questions.

Then after 47,000 posts (much like another thread here that is a Seinfeld thread), the thread will be closed after it degenerates into a complete brawl.

So, in the end, the bulb will never be changed because the OP will be in a catatonic state of analysis paralysis.

See, simple.

An objectivist to study the datasheets and decide which is technically superior.
A subjectivist to try them all and decide which produces the warmer light.
Then a forum thread to debate the merits of coloration, leaving one very confused OP in the dark.

don't forget the argument that is required over sighted, blind, and double blind confirmation of any perceived change...

I prefer analog tungston 40 watt bulbs and not digital led 20 watt lightbulbs. The analog bulbs have a smother more mellow sound, not like the harsh blue white led bulbs

If you are listening to Ray Charles, does it matter if the bulb gets changed?

I agree. If you deprive yourself of sight, your hearing will often improve.
At least I like it, less focus on the crap in the room, more on the sound.

Audiophiles would first have to save up to buy a light bulb with a silver filament and teflon insulation. It would only work for a couple of minutes, but that is the sacrifice you have to pay for high quality light.

Dont forget the teflon socket to reduce microphonics so your light dosent flicker, and as we all know the quality of the power cable is critical for a clean light source.
