Jim Austin's "As We See It" essay explores some fascinating parallels between the evolution of visual art and the audiophile quest. For me, at least, it also provokes a question regarding the relationship, if any, between the visual and audio preferences of audiophiles. My main system is in a room that also houses lots of art, most of which is impressionist. My system is biased a bit to the warm side. Do the guys who pursue "accuracy" tend also to prefer realism in the art they enjoy?
