One of the two very affable guys working the Tidal room was Daniel R. Barnum, Tidal's Western US Distributor, and I bring this up because Daniel remembered that we'd met back in 2008 at CES. Which is fairly impressive. Daniel also remembered that I enjoy guitar players and the music they make so he played me some guitar-heavy music which was not only impressive but plain old considerate. Nice, even. I mean, I couldn't even remember the name of that guitar player later that same day (it was Nguyen Le).
But what does this have to with computer audio? I bring this up because this is, in the end, a human hobby whose main concern is the enjoyment of music and personable people reinforce this as well as the other fact about hi-fi in general—we're here to enjoy ourselves. Some people get that, like Daniel, and other people don't like every one of those people who get angry about anything to do with hi-fi that has nothing to with them.
