Graham, by the way things have been going, you won't getting a pension until you're in your 70s... Confused I think the governments are trying to tell older people something... And I better not get started on Criminal's Rights otherwise I won't stop.

As for needless gimmicks on audio products such as IR remote controls, why would you want them?? More electromagnetic radiation making the job harder than it needs to be. What's wrong with switches on the product that are set and then left? I like to keep things simple so I can focus on what is actually important: How it sounds??

Which is WHY we try to focus on WHAT does a better job of it: Digitally sent through the airwaves; Chopped and topped-and-tailed and put on CD [Re: Winning The Loudness Wars] OR NOT MINDING to have to get up and select what record [or, damn it, CD] and sit back down to "enjoy the recorded bit we can listen to that sounds like the 'live event' ". 

CAN the one's who can AFFORD the High End gear GOT the ears to appreciate it? I don't think so. 
What audiophile gets to own a "Stereo" that he/she is really happy with and WAS able to afford it? 
Is it because of the frequency bandwidth that vinyl recordings give us, the reason why so many are turning back to it and enjoying what they are hearing? Many Younger ones [with GOOD hearing] are liking what they hear... Maybe Hi-End is being 'shunned' by the mass's who are quite happy with the New and Highly Convenient [plus more affordable at the same time] "way" you can GET music at the Present time...? 

Thankfully, also there will be the one's that frequent a website/forum like this one in the Quest for "that sound" that makes your hair stand on end coming from good equipment/electronics that people who are passionate about what they do, make. And you can talk to the guy who makes it. Worth a heck of a lot, that money can't touch, to get a hold of. But it's right here! 

While you have the rich and the poor, you'll always have a High End.
