I have to get this off my chest. Am I just being anal, or is it really annoying when someone says they are going to "invest" into a piec of gear, rack, or tv or something. It just cracks me up when people say that when you buy something to get the nicest you can afford because it's an "investment". I'm sorry, but an investment to me is something that gives me an appreciable return for my dollar. I don't care what you get for equipment, it's sure not going to be worth more a year from now. Anyway, I guess I'm just being weird this morning, but I wish people would use terms like splurge on the nicer set, or blow the extra money on that Denon receiver. : ) That's what it is isn't it? I'm just as guilty as anyone else when it somes to spending too much on audio/video gear, but at least I don't try to justify it by calling it an investment. Hope no one takes offense to this, but boy I feel better now. Out.
