Watch until the end to hear what this guy listens on his what must have cost a small fortune audio setup

Pro tip: Audiophiles are the flat-Earthers of the audio industry.

As a budding audiophile in my teens, I remember reading someone say that we all know the guy who spends $10K [1980s] on his system and plays nothing but elevator music and sound effects.

my eyes always glaze over when Quboz user carry on about their audiophile setups used to listen to Hi-Rez digital files

that fact that some people pay for $15 a month for something called Roon is all you need to know about audiophiles..

Roon
The audiophile player for music fanatics

How Roon works​
Roon organizes all your music – both files and streaming content from TIDAL and Qobuz – to create an interconnected digital library enhanced with rich metadata, including artists photos, bios, album reviews, credits, lyrics, concert dates, and insanely good recommendations.

this guy didn't talk about his $100+ Monster cables - therefore, i tuned out.  he's clearly an amateur.

Clearly the only amateur in the room would know you don’t need monster cables when your speakers are sitting on synthetic diamonds and you have sticks with discs attached to them…duh..

The comments on that thread are worth the scan…

It would appear that the disc mounted on poles likely ran that person at least $1200
