Perhaps it would be semantically more accurate, but I truly doubt anyone asking such a question is actually under the illusion, nor has the expectation that the answer is as myopic as the question. For me it goes without saying that whatever I read from someone else's point of view is simply an opinion. Anyone who's actually under the illusion that this stuff actually is factual in nature is deeply misguided. I also don't see much of a point, either way, in correcting the semantics in the way they phrase their question. I truly doubt it would make the poster view the answers in a different light, especially if they were of that 'misguided' state of mind to actually think there were some "right" answer to such a question. Nevertheless, I agree, posing the question that way does seem pretty silly. Another alternative would be something like, "What has been your favorite CD player under $2k?". I couldn't agree more that it is all entirely subjective. It is a good point that the poster include the qualities they consider positive attributes to the component(s) they are asking about. That would be useful information in responding.
marco, i think a better way of phrasing the question is:
what cd player sounds................. priced under $2k ?"
the problem with personal favorites is the subjective nature of "favorite".
i believe someone seeking assistance may be looking for a component having a particular presentation. it would be useful to specify what that presentation is.
