You are absolutely right. I really should stop arguing with audiophiles about cables/amps/DACs...
OT: I fear the comments to the effect of "People buy BOSE products as status symbols" seems a tad rich, not for the people personally, but for audiophiles as a whole, when we have whole magazines selling eye-wateringly priced equipment which nobody can quantify why it is better - but it comes in very expensive, shiny cases and allows you to compose photos showing how much disposable income you have.
That's before you start on the fanboys, of which audiophilia has its fair share.
