kenratboy Posted February 6, 2002 Share Posted February 6, 2002 I was talking to a new friend today at work, and the topic of audio came up. He is a car audio nut, and he literally exchanges his paychecks for car audio equipment. Anyway, naturally, I brought up the topic of home audio and home theater, and well, read on. I asked him ($5,000 car audio system with quad 12 subs) what sort of systems he had at home, and I got a blank stare. He told me, Yeah, Ive got an Aiwa boom box for stuff. And I asked him why he didnt have a decent (like a $300 bookshelf system) stereo system and he said that that would be crazy! Then, all hell broke loose, I told him that my system is worth a few thousand dollars, and that I was looking to upgrade to some speakers that cost about a thousand dollars a pair. This was like setting a bomb off, he was about to call the insane asylum or kill me, but he took the fact that I spent as much on my home system as he did on his car system with great offence. I have never expressed any dislike over HIS system in his car. Anyway, we get along fine, but its funny how some people dont grasp how nice a decent home audio system is. Obviously, car audio fans have the opinion about us that its a waste to put money into a home audio system, but I cant grasp how someone with a car that can omit 150 dB. would settle for an Aiwa boom box that had two, 4 drivers in it. One last thought, he told me with unwavering confidence that, Sound is sound! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
