Have you ever met a true audiophile out in public and had a great discussion? What a blast!
I was scrounging through the records at a local GoodWill and noticed some guy was looking over a pair of Avid Speakers for $13. They looked to be in pretty good shape. Having looked them up on the internet a few weeks before I told him what I read about them. I went back to looking at LP's and he walked over, went through a bunch of them and started mentioning which ones he thought sounded good sonically. Before you know it he was telling me about a few audiophile "must have" pressings and we got to talking about systems.
After about an hour I noticed we had both been engulfed in the conversation. It was like talking to an old friend I hadn't seen for years. We talked for another half hour or more and I finally left. I ended up with 17 used records from the GW and ordered the "must haves" he recommended later that evening. It was just really cool meeting someone like that out of the blue.
When I think back on it I find it amusing that two guys are standing in a GW for almost two hours talking about their audiophile systems while looking through $1 records. Of course the standard crowd was walking by hearing about DAC's, transports, Grado and Benz cartridges, record cleaning machines, tweaks etc.
