  1. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    You may have to use the word sound because sound quality is distinct from music quality. I usually consider the first to be a mix of objective and subjective while music quality is always purely subjective.
  2. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    What are these people obsessing over?
  3. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    I agree on that point. But that point isn’t relevant to reproducing the product that’s purchased or streamed with a high degree of accuracy.
  4. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    Agree, character isn’t 100% accurate. But this less than 100% accurate gear usually has a high degree of accuracy.
  5. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    Not what I said. High degree of accuracy doesn’t equal perfection or lack of a little coloration.
  6. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    I’d say 99% of people don’t want what’s being served. They want Beats headphones with big bass, they want normalized sound, they want loud because it must be better. Zero obsession required but it’s sometimes found in audiophiles in my experience.
  7. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    I disagree. I used the term “high degree of accuracy” because many audiophiles like components with a bit of character. I believe most of these components still reproduce audio with a high degree of accuracy. Maybe not the most accurate though.
  8. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    Ha. I could be be twice as vague and still 99% of people wouldn’t be audiophiles :~)
  9. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    An audiophile is someone who wishes to reproduce music with a high degree of accuracy to the album/track/file.
  10. MQA Off-Topic Spinoff

    I thought the first comment was more tongue in cheek than anything, but I don’t disagree with the sentiment that recording he is involved with are mastered loud. I don’t think you can disagree with that either. I agree the second comment isn’t helpful, but neither comment comes close to an attack. In addition the comments are from one person who doesn’t speak for anyone but himself. You thought many or most people (your words) here agreed with him but you’re using a single person to suggest something else entirely.

    I turned 42 Monday and he called me old.

    As they say, pics or it didn’t happen.
  13. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    I never mentioned you. Perhaps you see yourself in what I said.
  14. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    You lost me.
  15. What is the definition of Audiophile?

    I think people should get out of the house and talk to others who consider themselves audiophiles. You may be surprised at how inaccurate and condescending your descriptions are. I’ve met so many cool audiophiles who are nothing like what I see described above. People don’t amass 10,000+ album collections or go to live shows every week because they like to hear the gear through which the music is played. Sure there are some nut jobs, but there are nut jobs in every hobby and from all walks of life. Don’t let the nut job tail wag the dog. P.S. Even if some people purchase expensive gear to play audio test tracks and listen to the gear, I don’t care. Who am I to judge?
