When did you know you're different?

Well, it was the late seventies and I put on "Get yer Ya Ya's out" on my new system. A pair of Kef 105's, a pair of Meridian 105's with matching pre and Oracle Alexandria/Fr12/Dynavector Ruby. Awsome! They're looking at me like there's something wrong with me. I knew right then and there. It remains my all time favorite.
On that vein, I wish I would have keyed in on my grade ten biology teacher's interest, regularly keeping me after class to run errands. Very hot and definitely female.
I understand the thread in that I know as early as pre teen that I was more nerdish about music and attracted to stereo gear to the point I bored others talking about or imagining a great "rack system" (it was the 70's). My fetish with atleast interest if not investment in gear and loving music played on it is still strong.

Thanks Dayglow!
