    My time spent in the military, shooting, in construction, and at rock concerts has made the expenditure of more than $7.50 on audio equipment totally moot.

    You could hire the Rolling Stones to perform live for that.

    Better them spending on stereos than thinking about invading Asia. They are the friggen' fanatics of Asia and nobody wants them to have an army again. North Korea better watch their asses.

    The funniest thing about audiophiles is that some of them use equipment and cables that are better quality than what was used to actually record the original!

    Yes, fanaticism definitely a cultural trait. They are #8 in military spending, just behind the UK and ahead of Germany.

    They haven't revised their constitution which demands non-aggression, they just 'reinterpreted' it.
