So far the only place I've been that had nice speakers was the National Bank Hall in the South Shore here in Montreal.
All the other places I've been, whether they be restaurants, concert halls or whatnot had horrible speakers ~.~

...in the same survey, answer the second-to-last last bubble:

 

Who spends over $1000 on digital music?

Even if you buy "HD" music (personally, I don't think there are many audible differences between "regular" and "HD" music), say they're an average of $20 USD per album, that's 50 albums.

Even if you buy iTunes music, say they're an average of $12 USD per album, that's 83 albums.

 

I check out physical music CD's pretty regularly from the public library and I don't even think I really listen to more than 30 albums a year. T_T

I could easily. In fact, if i had unlimited funds, i could easily purchase upwards of 10 albums a WEEK.

when you're tearful inconsolably epically devastated for not being able to attend CANJAM due to a severe auto accident with no amount of begging that would amount to the Dr allowing you on a plane.    true story, im walking around now so im getting better, lol.

Oh, dear. I'm glad to hear you're getting better. Your health is always the most important thing, even if those headphones can be tempting....smily_headphones1.gif

You know you're an audiophile when you purchase several microSD cards and load each one to the brim with a different genre of music so they're "in order."

Ow wow, I'd have lost half of them in a month if I did that.

Can't you just get a big one and use the genre tag?

They're all 32 gig cards... And my Music folder is twice that size...

Wow. My entire music collection, counting all the classical I've been too lazy to compress properly, is less than 30 gigs. If I compressed all those classical albums the total would probably be less than 20 gigs.

 

I guess I'm just really picky.

 

 

 

You know you're an audiophile when you find it hard to listen to the Auto-Tune the News videos because the audio is so harsh and nasty (even though creatively they're brilliant).

Either picky, or maybe just young?  I suspect that a lot of the people here with huge collections are a bit older and have collected their tunes over many years. Of course, I could be wrong....smile.gif

I'm OLD Boohoo

 

Actually I've just been collecting music ever since I was in high school (Which was like 10 years ago)... So yeah... Around 25,000 songs in my library ranging from classical, to jazz, to rock, to rap, to electronica, to several genres of metal.

 

:) \m/

 

You know you're an audiophile when you can appreciate music, no matter what genre it is.

Well yeah, I could purchase infinite CD's in a week if I had unlimited money, whether or not I'll actually listen to them all and enjoy them all is up in the air though. I like to listen to albums thoroughly before getting another album, not just listen through them once and move on.

You know you really love music/headphones/IEMs when you spend all your time at the mall doing the following things -

 

1) Talk about them every 5 mins, and subsequently bore your partner/friend

2) Look at every single IEM/can that's sported by someone at the mall, and you challenge yourself to name the model, and then brag about it to your friends

3) Go into every electronic store just to look at the same cans you saw last week, at the exact same store, in the exact same mall

 

I'm sure some (or all) of the above have been mentioned by my fellow audiophiles, but hey, I'm sure we all do thatwink_face.gif
