2. This is a person that makes you break out in a cold sweat and shudder when he says "So something interesting happened today..."
3. Someone that triggers your fight-or-flight response just by speaking.
So my carpool buddy decided to be an audiophile on the way home today. He felt a burning need to tell me about the consistency of his bowel movements. I couldn't get away! We were on the interstate for fuck's sake!
However as most people are lovers of music etc, the term audiophile points to people who love high end audio equipment and can distinguish between good speakers and bad ones, which cables to use, and can tell what bitrate an mp3 file is at... etc etc etc.
Audiophiles usually argue to the death as to which setup is best
"what? how can you tell good sir? I hear nothing wrong!"
'cuz i'm an audiophile you filthy monkey!'
Audiophile: "Sure. Do you want it compressed or lossless?"
Audiophile: "What format do you want? ALAC, AIFF, VBR, CBR, AAC, OGG, WMA, WAV?"
Audiophile: "I'll go ahead and rip the CD to FLAC level 8, and you can convert it with dBpoweramp to whatever you want later."
