THE HYPE.............................. Appreciation Thread. - Page 64
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
There's a woeful lack of exposure on most things below the $50 poverty line when it comes to the "portable-gear in-crowd" people so whenever they get souped up on something I see it as an exercise in how chance works rather than it being an actual discovery of anything. It's easy to sit in an ivory tower, put on the monocle and marvel at "how far these peons have come".
But the fact of the matter is that there was never such a paradigm in the first place, at least from how they saw it. There have always been "good-sounding" things regardless of price but people will always have to bring it back to the price tag.
When I see people comment on the "state of the budget market" and "giant-beaters" and other instances of "quality must be a function of some other property entrophic situations should not exist" breeded from god-knows-where I help them wipe their rose-tinted glasses and tell to that I'll see the next year in Jerusalem.
And really it's not as hard to bring any random piece of gear into the spotlight as people would think. Primarily a game of chance - you just have to get the right people together at the right time in order to get the hype train going and that says a lot for this thread as well. Rinse-repeat-rinse-repeat.
Buy what you want, as long as it's within your means, that's the last I'll say on the matter.
I kinda miss being in the Sub $100 market :[

Everyone here is welcome to post whatever they want, the more random the better tbh. Nothing serious really and i thought i made it painfully obvious with my response to Twinkies post no???
