well, in that case I won't tell you the fact that headphones are more of a stepping stone or a way to get buy until I get a well established job in the medical field. I intend to have a listening room dedicated to music and a very nice vinyl rig and speakers.. in all honesty, if the money was there... I wouldn't regret spending 60k on a speaker set up, so long as they sounded as good as they should. I will spend more on audio than I probably will on real estate by the time I'm through with my life. But, think about it.. has any house, car, object really made me as happy as good audio equipment and a great album? Absolutely not. I'd buy a 60k speaker before i'd buy an extra car or pay to have a pool.
Priorities, everyone has them
True. It's all about priorities. About 5 years ago, I visited a local audio shop that sold the Wilson Maxx 2 speakers. I believe they were $60K a pair. The salesman that I was working with said they sold 3 pairs through their store after they were released. Actually, one of the customers happened to be a U.S. Postal employee. I guess you think that it would just be doctors and lawyers buying speakers for that kind of coin. However, it was just someone who loved his music enough to bring them into his life.
