Audiophiles are dicks.

We started this new project, building up this vinyl record related website. Posted a video we made on our facebook page, and here's a comment we got:

"You should maybe look up who I am and what I've done for 40 years and if you don't know that the arm needs to be angled by a few degrees instead of parallel to the plinth with some cartridges like Ortofon than you shouldn't be teaching people anything"

Ignoring the fact he's actually wrong according to Ortofon's official website, how much of a self-absorbed dick do you have to be to talk this way about yourself? But I guess it's the flip-side to the fact we could potentially sell 10 000$ cables to these kind of people...

The video actually did pretty well and is being shared around :) Happy about that! But I really have to figure out this lighting situation in my living room. Switching to LED lighbulbs made it look better, but the flicker actually got worse, especially if I move my camera around. Don't know if it's something in my camera settings I should fix, or if there's some better lightbulbs i should buy.
