Counter to the old chestnut, ignorance is bliss, I would suggest the opposite is true when building and enjoying great systems.
If you don’t know that cables matter, electronics sound different, compression formats are not the same—that it all matters—then you are missing what others enjoy.
Every low-end audio consumer exposed to the high-end comes away enriched.
And the opposite is true.
Those never exposed to properly reproduced music are deprived of one of life’s great sensual pleasures.
Let us all strive to be ambassadors, sharing generously that which we love with our friends and family.
Living in the dark is no fun at all.
