Audiophiles are constantly searching for ways to improve their hi-fi system. There are discussion forums, magazines and clubs for audiophiles to share their discoveries. While audio purists try to find objective improvements in sound quality, a few focus on the subjective ("what sounds better"). This can lead to changes that are not improvements, even though some perceive a difference.
As a result, some audiophiles have claimed improvements from a wide variety of changes, from the ordinary (adjusting speaker placement), to the unusual (storing CDs in a freezer prior to playback), to the bizarre (attaching plastic tags to the power cables of non-audio equipment, such as toasters).
Audiophile is also used as an adjective in descriptions of audio equipment and recorded music, where it is intended to imply high quality.
