  1. I’m only about a year younger than you, Paul, and I can say with 100% confidence that I can hear differences between components, whether amplifiers, DACs, sources, cables, etc. It is absolutely worth working on a good system. When I hear people say “My hearing isn’t good I can’t hear the difference” I suspect that at least 90% of the time they have not really heard a good system, have not paid attention if they have, or don’t want to allocate the necessary budget. I really get the latter - we all have our limits and priorities. But I challenge the first two situations. C’mon in, sit down, and listen to a good system. Several nights ago I had neighbours in to briefly listen to my setup - they’re not audiophiles and my system isn’t the most expensive or even the best. But they could hear the difference and loved it.
