Hi,

Once I had a girlfriend that was disappointed of the looks of my homebrew amps. I suggested her to knit a nice amp cabinet for me/us. She took it serious and started actually knitting the knobs but unfortunately she never finished the project.

Cheers

My wife will start doing audio when they make tubes out of diamonds.

Hey SY, I could just imagine the H(usband)AF discussions...

"I like the sound of diamond resistors vs metal film."
"Yeah, but the metal film is so much better bang for buck."
"No, way! Diamonds are a audiophile's best friend."

OR

"Honey, what happened to your engagement ring?"
"You're listening to it, dear."
"It's no wonder the stereo parts always cost 2 months salary."

OR

"What did you do, sweetheart? It sound so much better."
"Oh not much."
"Everytime you say that, I end up getting another job."
"Really, its just some new diamond dust cables."
"They use diamond dust instead of wire?"
"No, silly, the sheath between the OFC and the shield used industrial carbon matrix."


:)ensen.

PS: Like Brett, I'd die for DIY babe. It doesn't have to be audio... even carpentry or cars or something.

I've got enough tsouris in my life right now!

I used to have a way of qualifying prospective girlfriends- I'd bring them over to see Murray Zeligman, one of the great gurus of audio and a real character. If they could last an evening over there, they were worth pursuing. One in particular, I remember, sat through a lengthy explanation of how isobaric woofer loading worked (this was in 1979, when such things were pretty exotic). She listened carefully for 45 minutes and when he was finished, she smiled and said, "That is absolutely the coolest thing I've ever seen!" We spent the next two years together.

The more typical reaction was, "I don't know if I'm more bored or disgusted."

If I had to go the single route again today, I'd do the same thing, but with John Curl. Or maybe Steve Eddy.

Message from my femme fatale:

boys,take heart, I live with a DIY man, and I can just about explain capacitors. My laundry room is consumed with DIY gear as is the garage, and we I have even helped hold the flashlight or the wrench from time to time. We DIY girls are out there, keep looking.
