A Strange Question
In my August column, page 43, just before I have a blast with the $400/pair Definitive Technology StudioMonitor 45 loudspeakers, I discuss a few letters I’ve recently received from readers, asking if I’m satisfied with reviewing “lower-end” gear.
Am I satisfied?
I explain that I’m very satisfied reviewing affordable gear. In my mind, “low-end” is synonymous with “low-quality.” And that’s not what “The Entry Level” is about. “The Entry Level” is about high-quality gear, high-quality experiences, sharing the love of music and the love of life with family and friends.
Why wouldn’t I be satisfied?
In the Forums, Glotz wonders if I’ll still be satisfied five years from now. If my answer sounds sort of heavy or humorless, it’s only because I’m trying to be clear, I do take things seriously, and I’m tired of the question. And, while my stomach has grown flabby and my guitars are quietly resting in my closet, I will never move to Brooklyn. Thank you.
