We get into a GROOVE.
I find that, upon listeing to a lot of music (vinyl), and trying to evaluate sonics, we can easily get "sucked" into a "lower sonic standard". This happens because, people like me, who buy new lps, become a slave to the "lower standards" that are much lower than the standards we once use to aspire to. These lps aren't up to the standards I know exist. However, one/I can easily get use to the sonics these recordings produce.
It's important to note, this isn't the standard one should aspire to! Hence, "We get into a GROOVE".
We need to stay vigilant, and keep this in mind as we, as Audiophiles, go forward into our journey.
This is one groove I try to avoid. It is very important that we AVOID it!
