So at what point can we HT buffs be considered OBSESSIVE?? And, and what point does the obsessive become unhealthy? My "obsession" really started about 7 years ago, in my late 20's. A big ol' prologic system, and I thought it was good. Then the powered sub, new speakers, DVD player, new TV, new receiver, more new speakers, a new subwoofer, new DVD player, and again new speakers... I'll admit, the quality of sound I have now is quite remarkable. And the quality of video might soon improve drastically (if I get to make my next upgrade). My wife has made the comment that I/we (on these HT forum sites) are all "obsessive". I have been thinking about this and she is right.... In the last 3 or so years since I've really been into audio and DIY, I'll bet the ratio of tweaking, calibrating, researching to buy (not just for enjoyment), and DIY (building/finishing etc), to actually enjoying the finished product, is easily 20:1 or more... So she is right, about me at least... But hey, its a hobby. I'm sure there are much worse hobbies I could be into! I don't know where it will end (if it will), for now I will keep reading my AV magazines and forums, and try to upgrade what I feel I am justified to! So far I haven't taken any big financing to make any upgrades, I strike when the opportunity presents itself. I'm sure somebody out there will envy what I have, and I'm sure I will much enjoy it myself... So does anybody know where to draw the line between healthy and unhealthy obsession??
