Wow.

That's hilarious.

And frightening.

I'd make some points about the, um, designs, but I don't even know where to start.

Yeah, $17k for a turntable is a little ridiculous, but so is $100k- 1mm for a mixing board, 15k for a 251...   I think we all own a few items that others would consider a silly waste of money.  Also, living in an urban area, I see lots of people who make millions.  To them, its a hobby thats cheaper than a new ferrari. Im a gearslut who hopes to have a 17k  turntable and a ferrari and not notice the dent in my checkbook.  I guess studio business is gonna have to pick up for that to happen tho.   Very Happy

Sure, but the thing is--and I'm sure you know this if you've been to one of these shows--a lot of the insanely expensive stuff shown is complete junk, and gets backed up with claims that shouldn't fool anyone who's passed a semester of high school physics.  It's the selling-the-Brooklyn-Bridge aspect of the audiophile stuff that's so grating.

Yo know, if someone could just prove that some of this stuff does anything (beyond 'I can hear it'), the level of ridicule would probably drop.

Until then, I'm just laughing at DCs brilliant captions...
