When you are calculating how much money your new set of headphones + amp + dac will cost, and then deciding if you need to drop out of school. Haha

When the highest quality file of a song you can find is 320kbps mp3: you download it and instantly tell its source was below 192kbps. I guess this probably belongs in the QQ thread. God its been a long day.

You know you are an audiophile when you stop going for the headphone with the best clarity or sound quality and just go for a headphone that pleases your tastes the most.

You know you're an audiophile when you know that there are two different kinds of compression, and that, though not inherently bad, applied tastelessly they can both ruin your music.
 
(Sadly, if it's volume compression, there might not be anything you can do about it).

And it seems like almost all music made today suffers from volume compression.

And actually, there is a third, although it's not something related to the media.  There's compression that happens with some drivers at low very frequencies nearer max volume below the tuning point.

You know your an audiophile when you seek other audiophiles for advice
 
In addition you know your an audiophile when a SMOKING hot body... is completely ignored over a nice voice... *melts*
 
I think my luck with women will well decrease if I stop looking at them and just start shutting my eye's and listening to them...
