What?

I never recorded for target audience with iPods or car speakers only.

What I mean, if somebody have experience as an audio engineer it makes harder to enjoy records made with mistakes. And if somebody has experience as designer of audio equipment it is harder to enjoy reproduction through mediocre system because instead of listening to the music you listen to errors.

In 1969 I was 12. I finally found NPN transistor and made quasi-complementary amp for bass guitar, in a toolbox. Believe or not, only PNP germanium transistors were available then in small Siberian town. However, I had vacuum tubes then, but I "knew" that they were obsoleted forever.

This was me in '69. Not really concerned with music or stereo, just being an Echo Park hippie kid. But Dad was a jazz drummer, had 2ch recording at home, jazz bands at home rehearsing all of the time. Lots of parties at home with the wild weed passed around. Sometimes the stuff would make it my way for a quick toke.

Heh, I am still pure.
Cannabis in Siberia grew wild, but nobody smoked it because people believed that only weak persons use narcotics. Strong persons drink vodka. I always wanted to be a strong person.

Lets see how strong you are after a bottle of vodka? :-) Let alone your liver. I am fine after a bag of weed :-) cough/cough or at least I think that I am :-) Maybe its an hallucination.
You might be confusing hemp with the real McCoy, both are from the Cannabis family.
Now what does this have to do with electronics, oh ya, I forgot ... back to my lunch, yum.

Wavebourn, I have to give you credit: You were only about 5 years behind us, at the time. Given the limited resources and your age, at the time, you were a real 'fireball'. When I was your age, I was riding my bicycle and looking through a telescope in my back yard. I didn't play guitar until I was 15, and in a band at 16.
