The Age of Audiophiles

Thank god the age of audiophiles is over…. Audiophiles are jackasses. You know who I’m talking about: The guys – and they’re almost always guys – who own $54,000 stereo systems and have their entire apartments dominated by thousands of vinyl albums of rare imports that are boring beyond description but which they force you to listen to, when you make the ghastly mistake of actually visiting their sonic sanctuaries.
