Check out the review for the Lyra Kleos, for example, in Vol 34. No. 1 of the print Stereophile.

Even the Kleos stretches the definition of “practical”. My friends think I’m nuts because my stereo is worth more than my car, and I only have a thousand-dollar cart. And a shitty car. But, priorities, right?
I mean, Mike is testing carts on a Caliburn, lol. I couldn’t afford to retip most of these things, let alone buy one. These reviews serve the same function as porn for most of us.

Well, I have to go clean up now...

I'm pretty much the same. Truth is my stereo gives me more joy. The car to me is a practical tool.

To paraphrase Freewheelin’ Franklin, “A stereo will get you through times with no car better than a car will get you through times with no stereo”.
