Obviously all of us here have love for audio. I'm just curious, were your parents (or one parent- usually the dad) into audio and did that get you into audio? If not, where did it come from?
For me, I remember about when I got started. My dad had a basic 2 channel system from the 70's with the Advent Large speakers and a Tandberg Receiver, definately not an audiophile. He barely used it, so I know it's not from him. In 2nd grade we were watching a movie and I was seated next to the projector and audio mixer. I watched the lights on the mixer board go up and down to the audio track, more then the movie itself. So I think the audio enthusiast was wired in me all along. Around that same era I was watching the Real Ghostbusters cartoon and one of the characters buys a stereo to hook up to his TV, but it wound up being haunted with ghosts :D. I forced my parents to move the stereo from the living room to the TV room and hook it up. Then the equipment rack started snowballing :D.
