PP is a musician I believe. I think the definition of an "audiophile" is pretty fluid. Back in my day it meant you have higher grade Audio equipment and listen to music regularly and actually "understand music" and maybe play at least one instrument. I don't think it means that anymore.

I am, if you want to call it that. I don't really play anymore.

The definition is still the same today, where you prefer high end audio equipment and lossless files etc. Problem being some of the stuff is just so ridiculous in price it makes no sense to spend 50k on gear to listen to a 5 dollar file. I suppose part of that definition includes being able to tell the difference. Lately I've just been lazy and don't care. Stream stuff off of Amazon Music and the sort. I really only care about my audio when I'm playing games or watching TV/movies in the living room. I have "ok" setups for both but I wouldn't consider either of them audiophile level.

I am finally getting off my butt and transferring my old vinyl reconrds to my PC, etc I didn't bother before because from what I heard the transfer process left much to be desired unless you had a lot of money for equipment.

I love my FLAC & ALAC library but I do not have a fancy audio setup.
The speakers are Logitec THX certified 2 satellites & a 200 W Subwoofer.
My Headphones are JBLLive650btnc Bluetooth but can play directly connected, but that does not sound so good as on Bluetooth.
So I guess I am not an Audiophile.:cry:;)
