What will the audiophile section of heaven be like?

    1. You’ll have an endless supply of Black Gate capacitors of all types and values.
    2. Quads will always go low, play loudly, and never fail.
    3. All tubes are NOS Telefunken and they will never die.
    4. All FETs will be soldered in place by Nelson Pass, on loan from Earth.
    5. Cartridges will set their own VTAs.
    6. All DACs are R-2R designs.
    7. All transformers are made by angels.
    8. Cables do not matter, ever; but they are all really big and expensive.
    9. There is no feedback.
    10. Record cleaning fluid flows from a natural fountain, works flawlessly, tastes like The Macallan 25, and is totally organic.
