Is the idea of audiophile listening a dying concept as boomers die off?
Audiophiles are born by hearing music on a system of someone who has better equipment than he has. We are certainly no longer in the era of audio stores on every street corner, but so long as there's a saving remnant there's no reason why things m... 
Audiophilism is a hobby
I think it's something you do for pleasure. Is sex a hobby?  
Dickie Betts died earlier today at 80 years of age
Jessica is one of the great rock and roll instrumentals. It just soars.  
Burning-in as a non-linear experience
I believe burn in is a genuine phenomenon because I've had it happen when I didn't expect it. I had upgraded my speakers for the first time in many years and at first I was not overwhelmed at first. I hadn't a thought in the world that there might...

I have an LP with a hole too small for a spindle.  
The Psychology of Constant (Equipment) Change

More envy than hate, I would think. Certainly what I feel about the matter.  
Have you found your "End-Game" speakers yet? I have. And it feels so good!!!

What's a Good Way to Buy Music Collections?
There are probably a lot of people who transferred their CD collections to one of those storage devices, have not touched the physical discs for years, and would be happy to sell them. It might be just the disc and the booklet, but that would make... 
Would It Be Possible To Get Help Finding This Song?
Find out who the producer is or the producer's assistant is or someone of that nature who isn't too grand to speak to the public, find this person's contact information, and ask what the music was on such and such a date and time.
