Bdgregory - you're right. I wanted to try to frame the questions such that they applied to any budget. So, on the price sensitivity topic, another way to phrase it would have had one end of the scale be "In pursuing a purchase, I set a budget and stick to it regardless," with the other end being, "If I even set a budget, it is at most a guideline, and I rarely think about it in evaluating potential purchases." I think you could apply this whether your budget was $500, $5000 or $25000.
I should have put my own entries in the original post
Kt, I agree with you that budget consideration is somewhat implied in your questions, and as such I think you've framed it well.
My point is perhaps overly anal, but I was suggesting it only because (I think) different Audiophiles will devote varying levels of their household budget to Audio, and of course we all have different income levels to deal with too. These significantly affect our buying habits IMO.
That is perhaps for another survey though.
