Any women looking at this add Please reply

Just curious, are there any women who are browsing through adds looking for gear and upgrading like us men, any women audiophiles out there?

I just need some information, I have a girlfriend who will never understand this part of me, don’t get me wrong, I am the luckiest guy in the world I believe but I am just curious.

I guess we all have our differences.
Its like me walking into Mac Makeup I guess, just encountered that too and will never understand the endless time walking around in the mall shopping for hours not looking for anything particular, I have encountered this situation more than once with other individual female friends. Something different as well like us maybe.

If you are a woman, what is your background?
Why the interest? and please please elaborate on your system if you wish, please don’t feel uncomfortable to share!
We are all music lovers!

I'm a life-long music lover and technically disinclined. I understand very little of the language /specs of things. I stumbled across Audiogon when I was looking for speakers and a guy there told me about it.

That was a year and a half ago and I've been at it ever since. I keep saying that I'm 'almost done 'but it just keeps going. This time though I'm almost done.

This hobby can definately cross over into obsession, sickness, call it what you will. It's a fine line. I'll be the first to say I'm a little crazy but then when I get that new and better CDP or upgrade my cables, I wonder why anyyone who claims they love music wouldn't want to follow in my footsteps. Truthfully I wish I would have 'turned' audiophile long ago.

I'm over 50, single, and live in the Bay Area.

Is there an AA (Audiophile Anonymous) in your area? I was bitten a long time ago but have been very frugal in my purchases. Hope your hubby is the same.
I have always loved music, and I guess I got into the technical/equipment side of things because I also enjoy computers, building my own, etc.. Though the most important thing is the sound, I do enjoy researching different audio equipment, too. I am still learning and don't consider myself an audiophile, just a wanna be audiophile maybe! My life partner isn't much interested in this audio stuff, but tolerates my obsession.

I can't imagine living without music and the means to play it. I have no musical ability, but I sure know how to run a stereo system!

And if I had more $$$, I would consider upgraditis a blessing!
