Clearly you dig HiFi or AV. What's the other sanity-saver?I collect Omega wristwatches and read comic books.
General geekery for me! But mainly it's keeping this old dinosaur of a PC running! When I'm not doing that I'm usually reading (What Hi Fi of course!) and cconsuming biscuits, muffins and other baked goods.
Of coursh you do.
I sing and play guitar in a classic rock band, and I take lots and lots of photographs.

books.............and more books.........did i mention i read a lot?.......oh yes and science....hence the avitar
I used to read lots of books, but then I got a laptop so watch films on the train instead. Films - I didn't mention films.
What kind of books?
generally its sci-fi and fantasy but also some thrillers, a touch of horror now and then.............some fave authors are.........peter hamilton..........raymond feist..........john grisham..............brian lumley............an example from each genre........i didnt put films or music as i kind of guess there expected as hobbies if your hear?
Downhill Mountain biking. Freeride, street MTB, Building MTB's. Racing cars and building them. Beer. and Single malt's (and single ladies).
Not a HiFi Nut. Just has a pile of Nads.
Does work count as a hobby? I don't seem to have much time to do anything else nowadays!!!!!
I play drums in a rock band - we're going into the studio next week to record some tracks I enjoy mountain biking when I get a chance to do it when I'm not walking the dog. Ongoing DIY in my crumbling victorian house. Guinness. Big interest in cars too.
Football - Liverpool FC. Fishing - I don't get much time for it now. My family - my two girls are my pride and joy. I got into hifi because of my love of films

I still have some passion left for playing in the band again but some other comitments make it hard to jam.
I am learning golf (STILL! ) and could give most people a good game of snookers.
