The Road Less Traveled is a great poem. If you read it closely, it is about delusion
Speaking of, did you even read the OP?
The Road Less Traveled is a book by M. Scott Peck. The poem is The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost. Simply that high end audio is the road that audiophiles take and it is not taken by the mass of people that get their sound making machines at Wal-Mart rather than an audio dealer.
But that is also the road not taken in many consumer choices that are in the minority. And as in many things, the audiophile path is more costly than the boombox path. As most know, a single location McDonald's in most towns will do a great deal more business today than the best restaurant in that town.....nothing wrong, but still a choice that freedom gives us. Freedom of choice gives us the chance to choose what we want and the freedom to choose what we do not want.
