Good Vibes is about spotlighting friends, influencers and contributors in the audio and music community to say THANK YOU! Check out these ten stories from across the web. Do you have someone to spotlight? Leave a comment so we can all check them out.
1. Branding Fail
🇺🇸 Are you an audiophile? Do you aspire to be an audiophile? Do you love music more than gear or vice versa? Can anyone be one? Is there a test?
There’s a stigma that goes along with the term audiophile. I propose we rebrand and call ourselves “audiofriends”. The audio community is one of the best communities in the world.
Check out the latest ecoustics.com video with my schoolyard friend Emiko talking about this pivot shift.
#Audiophile or #Audiofriend
2. 100K Club
🇺🇸 Congratulations on 100K YouTube subscribers to the Cheap Audio Man. Congrats Randy for being a super cool audiophile or audiofriend, demonstrating that audio doesn’t have to be the price of a luxury car, vacation to Hawaii or high end.
🇺🇸 Gene is challenging Audiophile Purists who are stuck in no up mixing or EQ. Are you open to try new things? As an audiophile, we should strive for exposure, listening and learning. A key attribute of my audiophile journey is exposure and experience.
4. High End Preview
LS60 are all the rave right now. Have you heard them?
5. Home Theater Setup
🇺🇸 Home Theater Fanatics shows us how to hook up a home theater surround sound system. I strongly agree with Jiles’ choice of selecting a quality power distributor and Shunyata makes great audio products; you can justify these on look alone!
🇨🇦 Are you an inspiring Canadian audio recording tech? My friend Matthew @mproac has nothing but rave review for OIART’s 11-month audio recording program in London Ontario Canada, eh!

10. Fake Media
🇺🇸 Are Audiophiles Fake? Can you smell Fake? Listen to Tony Whatley interview Kimanzi Constable on Fake Media Influence Exposed. This is not audio, but FAKE is all around. Error on the side of authenticity.
