On one of the audio forums I frequent I asked a question about Elvis' music, the response was....well....silence!! So I thought I would turn the question around and ask here.... Do any of you here regard yourself as an audiophile?

I think audiophiles are those people obsessed with the mixing of sound, the quality etc.

The technical definition is "A person having an ardent interest in stereo or high-fidelity sound reproduction."

They're fanatical about the remixing of music.

How many times can we hear Hound Dog or whatever "remastered"? It's been done as well as it can be.

As far as I'm concerned, as long as the bass and treble are at equal levels and the sound is clear, that's good enough. The rest is pretentious bollocks.

Interesting question.

Interesting question.
The technical definition is correct.
Your added definitions are "pretentious bollocks".

So...I guess we can conclude that Observer (king elvis) does not regard himself as an audiophile, and will continue listening to his 8 track cartridges on his Sony player...lol.
Original question: do you regard yourself as an audiophile.

I have an iPod, assmuncher, with 12,000 songs on it.

And 3000 CDs and 2000 LPs which are played on a good stereo system - four basic sound buttons.

So, no, I am not an audiophile.

Like wine experts, they are pretentious.

You just need good stereo sound and that's it.

Ok so you are certainly not an audiophile, but i-tunes gets a lot of your money. Is the i-Pod "assmuncher" a big improvement on the i-Pod "touch"?

Obviously one that plays CDs and LPs without too much fcking around to get good sound.

And as for iTunes, less than 400 of my 12,000 songs were purchased from it; the vast majority of my tracks are from my own or borrowed CDs.

Ok, so anyone who wants something better than your vague description would be a "pretensious audiophile"? I'm just trying to get an idea of where you're coming from, or whether you are simply "thread crapping". It would seem you patrol this forum simply to shit on people, rather than have a conversation.

No.

FFS ... anyone who drones on and on about their system, or who is obsessed about the next remix of Hound Dog or whatever.

I've already answered the question.

And I don't thread clap, pal.

But I'm fcking sorry I bothered to SERIOUSLY answer on this one.

This thread was NOT about droning on about a system, it was intended to lead to a discussion about Elvis' music. You, in one fell swoop, managed to derail that objective, I guess that would be expected of a fucking moron such as yourself. So take your moronic ignorant self back to your MJ vs EP thread or whatever is the topic of the week...Prick.

I just wish that you would remainsilent. You are always right, but just like Gordo you cannot or will not explain why. You don't take the time to ask questions, you simply tell people how wrong they are without explanation. Then whn push comes to shove you resort to insults or cussing. Tell me "FKING ELVIS" how old are you?

Why don't you point out the contradiction...Oh I know why...There isn't one. Read the first sentence. "Fking Elvis" you aren't clever enough to be smart, so don't bother trying.
