There can be no end-game when the "rules" are changed at every turn. In this respect, the "high-end" audiophiles pursuit of an end-game rig is akin to a dog chasing its tail. They are trapped in a race of their own making.

However, I might inquire upon your adamant proclamation that all "high-end" audiophiles suffer from this self-induced trap.
I don't believe it's everyone out there. And many of us are quite finicky and fickle when it comes down to shelling out hundreds if not thousands.
