|I've got a little bit of hearing damage and I probably couldn't tell my setup from an extravagant one anyway. And given how allergic audiophiles are to double-blind tests, some of them probably couldn't either.|
Have you been following this amusing battle between James Randi and fans of the $7250 Pear Anjou stereo cables
A spoof audio product (audiophile air) I imagined over at the Vintage Asylum:
|I sell AudioAir, which uses polished nitrogen atoms and balanced O2 for perfect impedance matching between driver diaphragm and AudioAir, as well as AudioAir and human tympani. Each bottle of compressed AudioAir is play tested and broken in for 100 hours with a variety of program materials. The infusion of AudioAir in to your listening atmosphere yields a a more coherent soundstage, higher resolution, superior speed, and prompt activation of the recently discovered musimami receptor. Our promise: No concentrators, humidification, or pulse regulators stand between you and the music, as is the case with with lessor "audiophile" airs. $2395/10 liters. Optional tiptoes for your bottle of AudioAir $195.|
