    Drew daniels' snake oil recipes

    While rummaging through some old files I've had squirreled away for ages, I came across this handy cookbook that is still currently online at the Late, Great Drew Daniels' Sound Path Labs website.
    Here's a short intro and the URL, in case you are interested in perusing the whole enchilada.

    "Audiophelia" is a mystical religion constructed to victimize the benighted, much like a tax on ignorance. Tribute to this religion is extracted directly from the victims' wallets, and worship in this religion takes the form of one-upmanship in expenditure for audio components. These components then become objects of supplication for imagined sonic superiority but virtually never for enjoyment of recorded musical performances—since recorded musical performances are made with audio equipment far inferior to what an audiophile would consider even barely acceptable—a fact totally ignored by victims of their bad religion.
