Perhaps that'd be good, especially since I don't do anything with speakers.
But I think we've got a bigger problem that people can't afford to pay someone to hand built something for them. There's enough junk out there so I hope this hobby can try to stay shy of it... One's better off with DIY if funds aren't high!
In my personal experience, the first hurdle was being exposed to "hifi" for the first time. Reading about it can't pass on the effect of listening to the amazing soundstage previously hidden in a familiar recording. That was the "hook" for me.
The hand crafted affordability is an interesting issue. I guess a good analogy would be prints of paintings versus originals. Until seeing the original, most folks would be happy with the framed prints behind a sheet of glass. How long did the original take to paint?
What type of lifestyle does the artist wish to live? That's probably his sole source of income and the amount of hand-crafted items available to fund the artist's lifestyle are probably directly related to time available and quality produced. High quality generally means high time, which will translate into higher labor costs than material costs, thus more expensive than something mass-produced. I apologize for stating the obvious, but I'm thinking as I type. There is no easy solution for this. : ). Oddly enough, you might be able to argue that in some areas, 3D printing could be the new hand-crafted. Imagine being able to make many of your own parts in something you designed from the ground up? You can change your designs periodically as you are able to focus more time on development and iterative improvements. You would be your entire QA department. : ).
Going back to the all boats rise scenario and your desire that more folks be able to afford hand-crafted items, a rise in the standard of living for all would be great. Then it would be a matter of trusting the artisans not to raise their prices. : )
