I hope my first post here isn't too insulting but here goes. I wouldn't call myself a high end audiophile however I have had experience of systems between £10,000-50,000.
The thing is that whilst I understand the need for 'live music' or 'orchestral' music at shows, for the most part I don't listen to this kind of music, and so I feel that most demo's for me are .... not a waste of time, rather wasted on me. Which leads mw to the question would a high end system, Mcintosh, Wilson audio, Magico speakers etc, etc be wasted on someone who's into old school rap (Public Enemy, Run DMC, Cypruss Hill) 80's music (Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Level 42, Adam and the Ants) and 90 dance music (Orbital, Prodigy, Hybrid, 4 Hero)?
I hope I haven't insulted anyones musical tastes.
