How serious are you?

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being totally obsessed, how serious are you about this hobby?  Explain please. Thanks. 




I live in the Pacific Northwest and have air conditioning. My 38 tubes are providing wonderful sound.


It sounds like you are postponing listening for more than a few days. Also, climate change will make the number of days that are over 90 much larger.

Serious? Well I guess on your list of similar meanings, mine would be meaningful, and on a scale of 1-10, would probably be about 5. Centered mostly along the lines of enjoying a large variety of music and having a dedicated area of the house set up for my audio and a large collection music and an adequate system to play it.

Since I"m no longer into large, loud, big venue concerts and have no desire to re-create the scope of one in my audio room, it takes a fairly modest system to play the music I like, at the moderate scope and volume that I enjoying listening. While I do from, time to time, consider upgrading veracious components of my system, it comes no where near an obsession and usually gives way to other needs and interests.



Oohh, at least a 10. I am competitive and want to have the best stereo on Audiogon.

Satisfaction has nothing to do with the music. It has everything to do with being better than everyone else.
