Ever notice how some products advertise meaningless features? I can recall companies in our industry touting magnetically isolated AC power, low ESR caps on housekeeping circuits, and rhodium plated knobs.
Of course, we all want to place our equipment in the best possible light. If we don’t it’s unlikely others will. But when we fluff up meaningless attributes it challenges our community’s trust.
I often wonder how many companies place the interests of community ahead of their own needs? I suppose the question’s a little like asking if politicians are more interested in humanity’s well being than their own chances at reelection.
But here’s the thing. The healthier our HiFi Family the likelier it is to grow and thrive.
