Your partner's view on HiFi?
Maybe this has been asked before, even if it has, there are a few new bodies round here of late so no harm asking again
Have you managed to get your partner as obsessed as you? Or are they like my wife: doesn't really understand the fascination but she tolerates it as being at least one step up from my blowing all my wages on beer/illegal substances. I think she kind of understands, in so far as she understands what appeals to me about HQ sound reproduction, but I don't think she can grasp why it matters and how it affects my enjoyment of a piece of music. To her, music is something to put on in the background while you're doing something else. To me, it's the primary source of my attention, to be listened to intently and enjoyed (so long as it's the 'right' kind of music). And I think that's the fundamental crux of our difference.
