Listening pleasure is the law!?

Here is something I find worthy of sharing. We often get into discussion regarding the type of ultimate sound and real references closely connected to high-end audio reproduction. While I'll always urge to tie real references closely connected and compared with the live, acoustical and un-amplified music there will always be a strong personal agenda regarding the sound. Perhaps Claude Debussy envisioned it spot on when said: "You have merely to listen. Pleasure is the law."
