There are the snobby, deluded audiophiles who troll internet forums all day arguing about the merits of acoustic cryocoolers and adaptive spectral perceptual entropy coding, and then there's Ken.
Call his rig a ripoff if you want (his speakers, Bowers & Wilkins 802Ds, probably set him back over $15,000), but don't impugn his enthusiasm. For these ten decreasingly-appareled minutes, Ken the Audiophile is the happiest man in the entire world, and he only has B&W, Keith Richards and
his predatory loan officer
beer to thank for it. —Thanks, Jonathan
