What is an Audiophile?Edit
An Audiophile is someone who enjoys high-quality (or high fidelity) playback of music and sound. This can be at home, on the go, in the car, or at the theater. In general, we as a community want to discourage the stereotypes of an audiophile as someone who purchases esoteric wiring or overpriced equipment which does not affect the sound in measurable or audible ways, and focus on enjoying good music playback at all budgets and levels of experience. That is not to say that something is overpriced just because it is more than someone in particular might be willing to spend. We encourage you to read our FAQ about audio gear and listening , as well as our Getting Started Guide if you're new and want to improve your listening experience.
