"Total abstinence is so excellent a thing that it cannot be carried to too great an extent. In my passion for it I even carry it so far as to totally abstain from total abstinence itself." Ahh, yes, another wonderful Mark Twain quote. Some audiophiles are such purists they allow no consort with what they disagree with. Digital shall not touch my analog system! might serve as example. Yet abstinence is the cousin of extremism. In stereo systems and in life, extremism pushes so hard in one direction we miss out on everything left out. Imagine, for example, being so obsessed with high-frequency purity that we ignore the bass. As Mark Twain observed, when it comes to abstaining, it's often best to abstain from abstaining.
