I don’t know about you but for me, once I’ve heard a great high-end audio system there’s no going back.
And it’s not just high-end audio systems that reset standards. New recordings and new music do it to me as well.
With each exposure to a performance upgrade, I get inspired to push forward toward better sound.
Looking over my shoulder at where I have been is instructive but not where I want to be.
Once I put it in drive there’s no going back.
