People new to our corner of the world of high-end audio often find what we do daunting.
Eyebrows are raised at the idea of many thousands of dollars spent on electronics and speakers.
What often brings them back to planet Earth is knowing that for around $1,000 one can bring the magic of high-end audio into their homes. A system built around a Sprout and a pair of Elacs makes wonderful music.
That same $1,100 spent on a cheap receiver and speakers is light years away from what even a modest budget audiophile system can bring.
It’s not the money.
It’s how you spend it.
