Generally, I am disappointed with the music choices at hifi shows, though I am often surprised by the musical choices of audiophiles too: how many Dire Straits and Pink Floyd records can one repeatedly listen to? At shows, Shelby Lynne, Floyd, Fink, James Blake, Straits and shit jazz seems the norm, and that's on a good day!

Surely, the music has to come first. Sounding great is a bonus but not the raison-d'etre. I have heard too many of us only listening to music that sounds good, and that limits the variety of music listened to significantly.
