Whats the deal with this stuff? Ive been doing some research on speakers in a weak effort to get some good ones. I found some Pioneers that weigh in at $9000 a pair and I was like, "FFFffffffffuuuuuuuck me." But today I was reading some mags that had speakers and other components that put the Pioneers to shame. I mean, shit like $2000 turntable cartridges and $20,000 speakers. What kind of asshole buys this stuff? Who makes up the market? Are these superhumans able to discern nuances that the musicians themselves dont give a shit about? Ridiculous. Makes me want to just forget it and listen to radio shack specials.
