Does your "esoteric" taste in audio also exist in other "things" you own/consume?

This is not ment to be a "snob appeal" thought or thought process....but just a wonderment about others and their "other" consumer consumptions. 

My best friends and I share the "high-end" audio interest/hobby/investments but  in that same vein, we all have traveled "the road not taken" with cars, homes, foods, vacations, art...etc.  Again, not to be mean, but none of my human experience has been that the humans I have had interactions with were "selectively intelligent".  Your esperience may have varied from this....but my experience is that most intelligent people I have known were globally intelligent and most of the simple minded people I have been around are globally simple minded...Perhaps the latter explains the "thing" with politicians? 


The Road Not Taken 

Launch Audio in a New Window


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;


Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,


And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.


I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.


Cars.  Porsches, BMWs, and my latest - an Audi S5 with a speedometer that goes

to 260 mph.  

@jrosemd - Impressive... My Fiat 500 speedo only goes to 160. 

@bdp24 - Great PSA! I've lost a fair share of acquaintances to it over the years. Some better than others, but hated to see any of them go regardless. 

@immatthewj - Thanks for the laugh 

Yes, for me it is food, motorcycles, scotch, and extremely fine furniture and craftsmanship, and of course music of which the highest art form in the world is jazz. 

Yes, high end wine, Art, M3 and high end foodie to name some. Seems anything I love I eventually have to try the best
