True! Audiophiles seem to be unique among enthusiasts of subjective things in their insistence on assigning them what they insist are objective ratings.
And anyone who says "You should maybe look up who I am" isn't as important as they wish they were.
You seem totally in control of all things video you do, but if there's anything vinyl or vintage vacuum tube (which some will call audiophile but being realistic isn't) I might be able to help with, let me know. My vinyl expertise is mostly limited to "these are the records I have and this is the turntable I have."
