Audiophile

From Chace Audio

A platonic union of words from two classic languages, the Latin “audire” (meaning “to hear”) is combined with the Greek “philos” (meaning “loving”) to form the word “audiophile” meaning “one who loves to hear.”

Since it would seem that most people love to hear, this term might at first be erroneously attributed to all of humanity. However, as most people truly only love to hear the sound of their own voice, “audiophile” is more specifically reserved for those who appreciate expertly rendered recordings or pristine acoustic spaces.
