    Well I have seen wristwatches selling for $100, 200K. Do they tell time any better? This is not new technology in phone cartridges and maybe worth $100-200. Maybe 300.

    well Gary wristwatches can be jewellery and you can pay for the name and the craftsmanship.... but not for me, I'd lose or break it [or never ever wear it]

    guess you pay for the craftsmanship here too, but not sure my ears would hear the difference, and you would need kit to match.... talking of which:

    how about one metre audio cables at 3600 - 3950 a pair [ex vat] ? not called 'statement' for nothing I guess...

    My sophisticated stereo is my iPhone, Spotify, and a pair of wireless Harmon Kardon Sound Sticks. Great sound! At least to my elderly ears.

    Interesting ...

    About 30 years ago, my late father-in-law was giving me grief about spending over $1500 on a stereo system, as he only spent $299 on his. My response was if you only have $299 ears then a $299 stereo is fine. It appears that I'm now the one who has the $299 ears. Maybe it's the newer technology, but I can no longer tell the difference between mediocre and good quality systems - I can however, still differentiate the mediocre from the rubbish ...

    i have worked in audio/animation studios - issue 'at home' is always that domestic rooms are naff for true fidelity... only so much can be done...unless you use high end head phones

    Ex 3rd rate DJ from the seedy venues and outdoor raves of the late eighties here...quality? Oh, you mean bigger diameter, more volume and never mind the slight distortion it's just your fillings rattling quality? Yup, know what you mean. Expert at making that doof as doofy as possible.
