I'm not an audiophile by any means, but I love what I have. Upstairs in my house is pretty old school-

Old Klipsch KG bookshelves anchored by a old Pioneer 1050 receiver. Very rich and filling sound.

I am here! I'm a former sales person at Tech Hi-Fi. I was a DJ at at two college radio stations. Engineered for myself.

I had my dream stereo the 1980s when I sublet my NYC East Village apartment to some way out of state college students who stole the stereo and most of my albums.

As far as live v recorded, it all depends. There are fantastic concerts and fantastic records. Some of my favorite records are live. I have also seen some of my favorite bands perform not-so-great concerts.

I really thought this was about being an audiophile.

This was my premium stereo system that was lifted when I sublet my apartment. JBL! 100 speakers, a Marantz receiver and I forget which one it was.

Looking for a new stero system. I hate the sound of digitally reproduced music. I have tried. It's not warm, it's too bright. It's robotic.

Not sure what to get. I guess to any audiophile, it's obvious what type of music I like. JBL! should tell it all.

No gear other than the comp. But purchased the files form Amazon (inferior quality) or the artist themselves. At some point the artist send me files for a review. Then using audacity to boost, fade etc the tracks then using audio-joiner to mesh all the tracks into one single play less dead air space.

To reply to the OP by Lord Helmit:

I consider myself an "audiophile".Not going to rationalize or rant about why I enjoy spending any discretionally income on what others may perceive to a frivolous hobby.

Presently own several "systems".

A two channel system for critical listening to music :McIntosh based integrated amp(their most reasonable model) sourced by a 22 year old Sony ES 5 multi CD disc player.

Due to the resurgence of analog,I have recently added an entry Pro- ject turntable.

Speakers are a pair of Paradigm towers augmented by a Paradigm subwoofer.

My home theatre system: Is based on an entry Yamaha HT 5.1 receiver.The front speakers are a pair of stand mounted Focal bookshelf speakers ( gleaned form my old office system).A Klipsch center speaker,SVS sub and a pair of SVS satellites round out the HT.

We have another living area serviced by a very decent and modest SVS BT wireless system.
