Actually I do not think that it “all about money” but rather about “those” people who exercise nothing else then thier own Moronity. Ignorance is a state when a person recognizes that something is wrong but do not know "what" and "how" to do in order to improve or radically change the situation. The Moronity is the state of a semi-religious subscription when the actually sensations substituted with aset of dogmas and precompiled notions.
High-end audio is not about the high-end efforts but about the high-end Results. The superior results make for instances some audio elements to be superior within ascale of the audio hierarchy. However, the above-mentioned people do not discriminate the results, means or reasons. They blindly subscribed for any high-price solution, presuming that the fact of high price shields them from engineering incompetence or ignorance of the manufacturers.
Interesting that when I hear those $200K installations and experience a VERY poor result (99%), and that is the most important – the very primitive objectives of the results, I always try to ask the owner the questions “Why?” After they answer one level of the “Whys” (or more priestly: they quote in response Jonathan Valin or any similar clown) I then I drill down to the next level of “Whys” unit they exhaust thier motivations, reasoning and self-arguments. Usually it requires 2-3 round of the "Whys" and then they find themselves in jungles of contradictions or at the dead end of own thinking. Of course, this all is necessary only if they can not hear and that is ironic fact that they really can’t hear!!! Their primitive awareness of thier is so enslaved and so conditioned that it disables them to recognized reality “as is”.
This all convinces me that those people are not really victims but rather volunteers and therefore the phrase “Morons” is the very much applicable to that audio-group. I do not know why but I have very high sensitively to recognize the dismal communication methods, language and thoughts-algorithms that those “Morons” use. In my past was trying to deal with them, becoming welcomed into the crowd. However, then I got incredible fed up with the primitivism and the lack of self-gratification that I was able to get from all those activities and I began to wipe out those people out of my Reality. When I meet them, in the real live or on-line and as soon I got “that feeling” I juts sending them to hell, known what kind "dull package" they bare within themselves…
