Are audiophiles born or are they created? Are "Golden Ears" an innate talent (nature) or can you train yourself (nurture) to be a critical listener?

Are format wars, such as the battle between DVD-Audio and SACD, worth all the trouble? Some would argue that they let the consumer decide what is best, while others feel that these battles should have been fought in the boardroom and standards committee meetings. What do you think?
Are audio format wars good or bad for audiophiles in the long run?
Good, may the best format win

In the responses to last week's poll, one reader stated: "It is easier to buy and sell through the Internet. Hi-Fi shops are obsolete."

Is this true, are Hi-Fi shops on the way out?
