Default Are you hung up?

Are you worried that you may be too obsessed with how your system sounds and measures to the detriment of taking pleasure in the result of it's primary purpose? Anyone willing to admit to it and have any advice for people who think it might be harming their quality of life?

You seem to be implying that you expected sane people to be found here in the first place?

This I think was the primary mistake.

Advice? Remove hands from keyboard, sit up from chair, remove any portable technology from your person and place on table, walk to nearest exit and go outside.

And never come back ;-)

The anxiety will pass. You get to the point where you are the only one that needs to be pleased.

Or pick up some scratchy old Hawaiian LPs from the thrift store, mix a rum drink and drift away.

Yes.

This summer I've spent far too much money and spare time building a pair of 8-Watt monoblocks. Yesterday I took a break and went for a drive with my wife. We stopped at a roadside flea market - and I had to be dragged away kicking and screaming from an old RCA console in a danish modern cabinet some guy was selling for $65 (with a 3 channel PP EL84 amp inside!). Now I know I'm sick!

Followed your advice, except I'm listening to a scratchy thrift-store find:
