Why didn't you throw a tube amp into the mix?

A torture setup for bigshot:

 

256 bit 2MHz sampling freq. audio file ->  tube computer -> tube DAC -> tube amp  -> headphones shaped like tubes

I only own a tube headphone amp. Besides a tube amp would be even more obvious so what would be the point?

I have more respect for their products now, although I think their amps are very expensive, but I guess not as bad some ridiculously priced ones out there.

Even I am skeptical...

Goody! I'll stuff these five suckers in my underwear and ditch the Viagra. (Or do the SR pebbles cost more?)

And now in 2014 McIntosh sells it's own full line of McIntosh branded expensive high end speaker, interconnect, etc cables. The $ are just too big and the whole industry has sold out, no one who's income depends on the audio/video market in any way will tell the truth about wires any more. Sad that the industry is built on a house of lies.

Yes, it isn't magic, it is for economic reasons.
