Really? I hear that a lot and I am sure it's true for some of us. But my sense is most of us like the gear, the kit, just as much as we like the music.
When I attend a consumer audio show I see endless numbers of people wandering from room to room looking at equipment. Most sit and listen to a sprinkle of music, some take their music with them and listen to the same piece in each room. Are they judging the music or the kit? I would suggest the latter.
I don't know about you but I love the equipment in our industry. The crazy designs, the wild industrial finishes and looks, the latest innovation trying to set the world on fire. You just don't see a lot of that spark in any other industry anywhere else in the world. It's part of what keeps me interested in our sport.
Yes, I love the music, but I love what makes the music as well.
