I feel better about myself now Next people here will be posting pics of their utility poles..lol
I need an upgrade.
I thought my audiophile habit had gone cold turkey but now I have seen the light.
My little idiosyncrasies seem so minor and manageable now. Thank you, Japanese audiophiles!
That turntable in the first video looks almost like a mastering lathe. Love the long tonearm, also.
I just showed the wife the video to prove to her (or perhaps myself) that I wasn't crazy.
Oh thank God...I thought this was going to be a new flavor of Mountain Dew, or something....
There's no short cuts to the perfect sound....
Do not show your partners the last line of the video! Or prepare a VERY good comeback line before you do
Good point on the power from the public grid being tainted. That'll be my justification for tapping directly into the power grid ..... but I'm not payin' for my own power pole to do it since - as the last guy in the video pointed out - I can use that money for more gear ......
Just make sure Randy doesn't catch ya!
How much does a new utility pole cost?
Wow. The 2nd guy in the video hasn’t purchased new clothes in 15 years?
Nor used a clothes iron, apparently!
There are much cheaper ways to run a system on clean power than buying your own utility pole. How about a PS Audio P10 Powerplant (or even the new P20). Even so, that’s a minor improvement compared to setting up a system well. He has his own utility pole and yet his speakers are in wall and he has an equipment rack out in front of them. Also, why not invest in a more comfortable chair?
But he has a girlfriend.
“Electricity from water power generation makes your sound better than from thermal power generation.."
Imagine $100K speakers.
It's easy if you try
Clearly she was not involved with preparations for this interview!
Of course not, she was out working three jobs to pay for his stereo!
^ Thus unavailable to remind him of which great love affair has place of prominence in his life!
The video showcases symptoms of obsessive behavior. It has more to do with that than it does being an audiophile.
^ Because one would never lead to the other!
After 10 plus years on these forums now, it's virtually impossible for me to be surprised or alarmed by the behavior of audiophiles. At first, I almost thought it was ridiculous that the second guy has to move his couch every time he opens his refrigerator, but the more I thought about it the more I figured, "Nah, it's fine. It's gotta be worth it."
