How old were you when you got the "hi-fi fever". When you knew that you wanted something better, than the local electronic store could offer, and how did it happen?
For me it happened when I was 17 I think (am 18 now)
One of my good friends was on Hi-fi klubbens (the biggest hi-fi store in Denmark) homepage. I went to that page myself, and thought to myself "nice". I then visited the store with him, and there I heard the B&W 685's and I was hooked :)
