Now I can laugh of everything mentioned here including components. I think you've misunderstood your wife bud.

Czar, I don't laugh at people who love music that have entry level systems who can't hear any difference in cable (well maybe I do), and I sure as heck don't understand them laughing at guys who can afford the best and are listening to systems that reveal things you haven't heard and don't understand.
Here's a good quote, and it's mine,
"Say what you will about ignorant audiophiles, they sure save a lot of money"
I like that, it's good, huh?
Its very hard and not cheap to get that SOTA system that reveals everything. Size matters in addition to quality. The best will be systems capable of top performance in bigger rooms.
Wires matter too. Those who have tried many at different price points perhaps and settled on what works best for them have done it right. No matter how much it costs. Others should take notice and learn. Once one is educated as to what the best can sound like, there is still a chance you might achieve similar results for yourself, maybe even for a good bit less.
You can't hit the target until you know what it is.
"For some reason Audiogon has recently become more hostile, particularly to any mention of premium audio cable or other tweaks. I thought that went away a couple of years ago when everyone realized good cable helps. "
My guess is a minority in these parts do not believe wires matter.
But since it is hard and not easy to determine what wires work best or offer good value, there will always be skeptics and rightfully so.
Hostility does not help. An open mind does.
