I have to ask (sorry I know its not really the place) but what qualifies as being an audiophile? I started with apple earbuds and then jumped to inearpeace then finally jumped to hifi350's so while I'm not up there by any means I noticed as I increase the accuracy I get more of those tinglingly in the music moment kind of euphoria, does that classify? Maybe, maybe not.
I really think anyone who is on the path to finding the best sound -- anyone who cares that the music sounds as close to live as you can afford to have it -- is an audiophile. Not every audiophile needs to be able to tell the difference between a 320kbps AAC and a 24bit/96kHz FLAC file to "qualify." I know I'll never be able to afford an Audeze LCD2 and whatever $1000+ amp/DAC is required to match it, but I'll do everything I can to get as close as I can with what money I can scrimp and save.
