Absolutely Correct - Not A Hobby

""Audio", as a "hobby" isn't, and never was, a hobby among most music lovers."

Absolutely correct. And, until sometime in the late 1990's, it was never referred as such.

"It's just you 1 percent who have money to burn and buy/sell/flip equipment every few months or a year who think it's a "hobby"."

Good point. From that point of view, it actually is rich folk "hobby". Like horse racing, or figurine collecting.

"Building plastic models is a hobby. Collecting rocks, stamps or coins is a hobby. "

ABSOLUTELY TRUE.

"The record-destroying gawd-awful sound of the "close and play" record player of 1960..."

It sure was. It just burns me and confirms that we're now living in alternate earth bizzaro world when I see them flipping out over some piece of crap, low-fi record player from 1955 [as was right here on this general board a few days ago].
