      Why you feel like upgrading your ICE?

      Hi Guys,

      As an ICE nut in making ( I am self proclaiming it, benchmarks has to be done by pros here) I always ask myself these question:

      WTF is wrong with all other ICE Nuts here... Do they have shit load of money stashed in the Flush Tanks ?

      When I see posts about the BUG I wonder is there a real bug called IBUG, is like like the beetles in the mummy series which crawls through the skin of an ICE nut to his brain?

      How does the upgrade fever start, what are the symptoms?

      Why is that you guys feel after 3 - 6 months that ICE needs to be changed? Does all you ICE nuts change the foot pront of the music so that it needs all together a different setup?

      When investing if you invest on a best possible setup suitable for your music then does the fever/bug bite/poison diffuse start again?

      Last but not least... How can a common man afford the BITE/Fever?

      Enlighten me o lords and ladies of the magnificent ICELandia

      Sensitive topic : IMHO only - Most of them who upgrade are weak minded. They don't listen to what they want but always tend to compare their setup with other's. Sometimes lost in priorities and mostly lost in what they really want. If people say "PASSION" - i get confused. People will upgrade as long as it is OPM!

      P.S.: My first setup cost me 22k in my old car. My new setup till now cost me 11k. With the upgrades, total on my new car will hit 25k I still feel for 25k I could got an 24inches LCD TV or may be a round trip to munnar with my wife and children. I am not driven by passion as 25k is peanuts when compared to big bucks.

      I think its just different poisons for different folks...For me it was the never ending CarPC project and the immense possibilities it brings.

      I'm not at all into the music scene (while driving) but just went with the Mosconi amp since I got a good deal here on our classifieds. But it just didn't end there...Wait till I reveal the 4-Channel amplifier that is going to be used with the Bloat DAC...I just received the AMP yesterday after a 1-month long wait and I guess it will be the most unique amplifier on GH or may be even in India. That's right, I've purchased the last piece ever to be made!

      there is a shitload of stuff in the ICE domain and each product is designed to tempt. hell, when I look at all the names being thrown around, I want one too. tht and the fact that sound quality is highy subjective means that every person you talk to will have something good to say about a bunch of stuff. if you fall into the trap of listening to others' opinions without applying your own brain first, you *will* end up blowing all your time and money chasing a mirage.

      in simple words, if you have a specific problem with your music, upgrade to something that will solve that problem. if you have a setup and are happy with it, then when the bug comes and bites you, ask yourself "why?", not "why not?"

      Because THEY WANT to!
      It's the money controller who makes the choice and it's their money.
      I'll share a simple example: My family gave me 50k last week for my misc expenses (I had asking for some car ICE upgrades and a new phone). All I need for my car is an amp and sub (prob arnd 15k I'l get decent ones). However, I went ahead and got a Galaxy note (33k), books (7k), 10k in account.
      It's what you want.
      These guys like hearing unbelievable sound quality in their vehicles, and are achieving that, their choice!
      I felt my money better spent on other stuff
