      Technically that makes all of us audiophiles. I went to Urban Dictionary for other opinions, my favorite is "Someone who listens to the stereo instead of the music". That's actually somewhat accurate as well, in the room at InDIYana or MWAF, that exactly what I try to do. Luckily I do actually enjoy the music itself most of the time in other circumstances.

      Someone should add another urban entry: "Someone obsessed with audio re-production gear without grasp of the science behind it"

      On topic... I bet my $300 all in 2.1 setup that I brought to MWAF last year would out-perform that $2000+ setup significantly.

        I'm wondering where you can get 3.5" analog stereo connectors when they are normally 3.5mm. seems to be a very proprietary connection method if you ask me.

            True enough.
