RE: Question about A/B tests - switching equipment

I caught the audiophile bug in high school in the late 1970s. While I was in high school, fellow students at my high school (El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills, CA) openly discussed audio between classes. And often hung out at the Federated Group store. (They even bashed Radio Shack gear, like audiophiles bashed Bose.)

In college in early 1980s (Case Western Reserve Univ., Cleveland), dorm students often had "stereo wars" (coined from "Star Wars"- The original movie came out in the late 1970s).... I personally didn't have the budget other students had, and started "tweaking" gear to "keep up". A fellow college mate actually got mad at me for doctoring a turntable that he sold me. Another dorm resident showed off his system by blasting the "helicopter" track from Pink Floyd's "The Wall" out the 4th floor window to students walking below......
