How Much Do You Enjoy Listening To Music?

and how much would you play for the perfect sound at home?

it appears a lot after spending a small fortune on his home sound system, Takeo Morita recently told the Wall Street Journal, “Electricity is like blood, if it is tainted, the whole body will get sick, no matter how expensive the audio equipment is, it will be no good if the blood is bad,” He recently paid around $10,000 to have a concrete utility pole installed in his yard, it comes complete with his own personal transformer, which feeds power more directly from the grid, it appears that the 82-year-old lawyer who already had a $60,000 American-made amplifier, 1960s German loudspeakers that once belonged to a theatre decided that the ‘dirty’ electricity was not good for his sound system, 

He is not the only Japanese audiophile who wanted ‘clean’ electricity, 62-year-old Yukio Yoshihara always thought his expensive audio system sounded much better at night, when neighbours weren’t using their appliances, and after asking electricians to assess the quality of power in his home, he knew he had to invest in a personal utility pole, “I found out just how polluted the power supply was,” He ended up paying $40,000 for a custom setup, complete with a new circuit-breaker panel and wiring, 

this short video has a look at one audiophile whose system takes up so much room he has to move a sofa to open his refrigerator, crikey and there was me thinking about replacing the bell wire we use for the speakers to speaker cable!
