I don’t like audio. I am a musicophile. My budget, in decreasing order: (1) tickets to live acoustical performances; (2) Musical instruments, mostly harpsichords; (3) media; (4) recording equipment; (5) playback equipment.

I find the music archive first, and then seek an appropriate playback system. I have approximately 5,000 albums in all formats since Berliner. NO recordings are good enough to justify more than $50K for playback equipment, but one may easily double that number for architectural modifications - and that’s a good target ratio.

I have never confused live sound with reproduction. I can hear the difference between 192K and 384K decimation, and DSD. I do not image on coincident, multi-miked or other IALD based fake stereo recordings. I hear phase, can’t stand vented boxes, horns or most implementations using stiff radiators (metal, Kevlar, carbon, fiberglas etc.). Most speakers have high spatial and temporal distortion and I have not heard a speaker that reproduces full orchestral level without distortion.

I have heard good illusions of surround sound from Michael Gerzon, James Johnston, Andrew Lipinsky and Ralph Glasgal; and commercial release by Chesky. This is more interesting than 2 channel.

Audio is an illusion that is it period.
