The path to audio nirvana sometimes takes us in dark and difficult directions. We must fight terrible evils (such as room nodes) and stand strong against great adversities (such as static electricity) to achieve sonic bliss. We have all encountered our fair share of audio demons. Describe your personal hi-fi hell, or tell us about your most treacherous hi-fi demon.

Recently, there has been a on-line furor over an audio manufacturer having supposedly re-badged another manufacturer's component as its own (with a sweeping price increase). This practice has been going on for years: Some high-end audio manufacturers have always taken mass-market components and used them as the basis for their own products. How do you feel about this?
