Leafing through the latest Stereophile Magazine I ran across an interesting ad. Its question to me was whether I would get more excited about paying a high price for a product that weighed very little or half the price for one that weighed significantly more.
Audio by the pound.
How many of us really have a handle on what to consider when it comes to choosing new gear?
How do we know what will synergistically fit into the complex puzzle we call our high-end audio system?
For some, I suspect it’s based on brand loyalty. This brand has always worked fine in my system.
For others, perhaps it’s the allure of new technology, the promise of uncharted waters.
And still others, the sheer emotional draw that gets us salivating.
Whatever motivates you to try something new doesn’t really matter.
At the end of the proverbial day, if it slots in and works then hallelujah!
