"I hope I don’t alienate anyone with this. Today I had to begin thinking about this topic (I’ll get to why). Lately I have been thinking about upgrading my back bedroom set of B&W CDM 1SE loudspeakers to KEF LS50s, which I have and really like in my TV room. Just this morning, I began to have doubts about the whole idea because of a news story which linked me to two web sites. I’m including these links below and this explanation so you can look for yourself, if you want to.
The story made me question a lot of what I do, including the way I enjoy music and audio. Basically, this is an unnecessarily resource-intensive hobby, at least the way I’ve done it, - I confess. Todays news and lots of other recent news is making me question whether I need to upgrade the loudspeakers in my bedroom, which are quite nice, for something even better. Really has nothing to do with audio right now. Lots of ther issues arise when you begin to look at things with a new perspective, and these two web sites might do that for you.
The two websites I want to refer you to, if you’d like to see what got me thinking this way, are:

Even if voting never came up, something that every responsible scientist believes in is offensive to MAGA chods over there, because their Fox News tells them it's all just so libruls can give their jobs to blacks or mexicans, so they report it and it goes away.
One of the Euro members had a thread up, it lasted a few pages, then he tried a second one, gorted and locked after a post or two, then someone else tried a third, not even one reply before it was locked.
