RE: You Might Be An Audiophile If :

LOL - that's funny.

I used to work at a little hi-fi shop where Dr. Richard Greiner (AES Fellow, and Professor of Electrical Engineering at UW-Madison) would come in pretty regularly. So, we got to know each other. He invited me over to his house, where he had probably two or three thousand records. I don't remember the electronics, but he had these huge refrigerator-size custom speakers. A line of JBL slot tweeters (maybe the 077), a line of JBL 4-5" mids next to them, and four 12" or 15" JBL woofers next to the mids. Maybe something else also in there (don't remember if it was a 3-way or 4-way system - it's been a long time). Those puppies could crank. And, they sounded good, if you didn't move. But if you moved, the comb-filtering was clearly audible. I mentioned this to him.

A few months later, the cabinets were sitting at the curb, sans drivers. I don't remember what new speakers he bought. He sure was a fun guy, and taught me some stuff, too - especially about cables and loudspeakers.
