Not In My Case............

“Any of you also get this sense of isolation because you are passionate about music and its reproduction?”

Not at all..... Quite the contrary, in fact...... I have no problem discussing music with mainstreamers....... (In spite of frequent disagreement.) The audio gear part rarely enters such conversation, but then again, I’ve always taken this hobby as ‘music first’- The gear is the facilitator, not the main attraction. I get then most satisfaction whenever the listener voices interest in some music that he just listened to for the very first time.

People of various backgrounds visit my place, and the reactions to the audio systems are all over the map....... The most-recent one was an A/C tech who took a visual liking to the “100 dB Club” system, and then asked me if I had any music by Pit Bull........ He wanted to listen to that on the system. I kindly answered “No, I don't have any Pit Bull”...... (He asked if I’d play Pit Bull if he brought some CDs, and I said ‘of course’..... ) He did voice interest in listening to music at my place on his free time, I’ve yet to follow up, however. Just too busy......

I do have quite a few listeners drop by for listening already. Five regulars, as of now. (I visit their places as well.) Spirits (champagne or cabernet) and food is optional.

Heck, there is also a local designer here in Phoenix who wants me to audition and review his signature amplifier........ (Since this individual is not well known right now, and I have no opinion of the sonic performance of the product, I will not disclose names. I will only say the fit and finish would wow patrons if the product were to be displayed at a high-end audio show.)

So there’s a lot on my plate when it comes to sharing the audio/music experience...... Maybe I'm fortunate, but I don't ever recall any isolation, in regard to the hobby of audio.
