Audiophiles. We're nothing if not opinionated. And that's great because opinions equate to passionate and it's passion that floats my boat.
Where I draw the line is when we're scornful of others—when we turn our noses up at those that value sound quality over musical performance, hardware lust vs. musical yearning, tubes vs. solid-state, or digital vs. vinyl.
It takes all kinds to make our community and I would just like to celebrate our diversity and differences rather than wag my finger in the faces of those who disagree.
In fact, the worst thing ever would be for folks to agree with us on all counts.
If we want to turn up our noses, let's reserve that for those with low levels of tolerance and kindness for others.
