RE: You Might Be An Audiophile If :

It was at that same shop I met a number of mentors who proved to be highly influential to this scrawny teenager. The owner had a huge classical collection and introduced me to an entirely new world of products from companies like Magnepan and Audio Research. Another regular was a Cuban lighting architect who was very much into jazz and latin music who had a fun system.

And it was there I met Dr. John Cooledge who was a prominent TAS reviewer at the time. He invited the four of us from the shop over to listen to his system - where I heard his Dayton-Wrights and was immediately transformed into my moniker. I discovered my hyper-sensitivity to coherency back then. And through JWC, I met his long term friend HP. Over a period of decades, both of them taught me invaluable lessons about music and the critical observational listening experience - even though my preferences were different than each of theirs. As a member of the ASO board, JWC got me a small role in one of their Telarc recordings. And introduced me to more than one conductor and performer.

I simply cannot imagine what my interest in audio and music would have been without having those formative experiences and mentors. :)
