For the hardware hobbyist - have fun with tubes, separates, mono blocks, sub woofers, etc. For music lovers who like to keep it simple and mostly listen to music while doing other things KISS.
Nice. First Audiogon post and you’ve managed to label everyone who owns tubes, separates, mono blocks, sub woofers, etc. as "hardware hobbyists", and insinuate their enjoyment of music is secondary.
You take your path. Let others take theirs.
Let’s agree that most wouldn’t be here were it not for enjoyment of music.
