Who R U?

A while back Garfish mentioned he lked the idea of getting to know some of us better.As no one has started a thread like this before I will take the plunge.I have been involved in and read many heated exchanges here in AudioGon.I hope no one attacks me for this thread saying "who cares about you,this is audio" Anyway,Im 45 and live in W.N.Y.I have never been married but have a music loving 11 year old daughter who lives with me.I have been a nurse for 20 years.Before that I was a Navy Corpsman for several years.I recently became engaged (first time) to a beautiful 30 year old music loving woman.At my age a 30 year old is a keeper and I have never been happier!! My other interests??Im into vinyl,who has time for anything else??
I am 48 , have been involved in hifi for 25 years-hardly ever known a woman who cared about it! And they can hear better than us guys!
Su2618 - brilliant!!! You summed it up in 2 simple sentences. I agree 100% - and that's a first on this site!!
I'm a 57 year old shrink and father of two sons, one of whom teaches psychology at the Univ. of Ill. Have been a 'phile for 30 years. Nice to know there's another shrink on this board! Love tubes, great female vocals and Dylan. Listen to folk, blues, and jazz. Feel there are many synergies between my profession and love of music; artistic and human expressions interface with ech other.
Biotime: I'm 31yo and have been an audiophile for 12 years. It started out with ACCURATE, rather than boomy, reproduction of sound in my car. My best/last car system had McIntosh CD/tuner and amps and 12 Dynaudio Speakers with 2 digital signal processors to put independent delays on the driver's side speakers for proper imaging (similar to TACT RCS. Sounded great for a car.

I've been doing the home stuff for about 3 years. I'm a Physicist so I enjoy both the acoustical and gearhead aspects of this hobby, but I also love music. I pay for the audio toys with my consulting firm that designs biotech instrumentation for genetic research.
