Audiophiles and Music Lovers

Unread post by Fretless »



This is a fun ramble from Steve Guttenberg where he takes a look at the differences and similarities between Audiophiles and Music Lovers (with Record Collectors as a separate category).

Me? Well I'd say I'm in the middle: a Music Lover with Audiophile tendencies.

What are you? :think:

I hate music. I can't believe I have to bloody well listen to the shite when I am trying to hear my equipment. Gets right on my tits.

Here's my favourite listens

White noise, pink noise. MLS noise and frequency log sweep

Bah Lightweight - try Reed's Metal Machine Music

As for me, music lover with modest audiofool tendencies, if it was a decision of £100 on a new bit, or new LP's I'd pretty much always choose the later.

Primarily a music lover, but if it were not for the audiophile part of me I would be listening to a lot less.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc

I gotta say I'm sick of videos that ramble and take a LOT of time to simply get to the point.

Sod it. Life it to short!

Seeing as this is a full-fledged audiofool forum, how is one to answer the question without offending?
