Like our cars, nothing ever has sounded as good as vinyl. Unfortunately, you have to buy a $800.00 nitty gritty vacuum to keep them quite and then have a glass of merlot and then, the magic begins with memories of what was considered the best experiences in your life.

Dindo - tube audiophile enthusiast / 993nb perfectionist

I've found several audiophiles here on Audiogon...ooops....Rennlist. I'm a tube/hybrid and vinyl sort of guy-upgraded Counterpoint amp with an Audible Illusions pre (with the MC Gold Card) plus a Well Tempered table played through Sound Labs electrostatics. Had to build a house because I couldn't find a existing home with an adequate audio room. Turned out to be a good Home Theater set up, too, with a projector that gets video to 105".

Also do as much sailing as time permits, which is not much these days. :( Will race (helm, crew, tactician, whatever) on anything as long as the team wants to be competitive. J-22 is my usual fleet where I usually can be found floundering around on foredeck.

Work (pictures of my "office" below), my two Jack Russell Terriers (Dino and Daisy), the house (below behind the office), and pretty much anything outdoors (camping/fishing/quading/boating).

And lots of vinyl records, complete Beatles (two white album, original Euro white album, Rolling stones, classical, opera, early american musical, all 70s disco stuff, lots of jazz and of course Joni Mitchell.

Recently retired at a very young age so I'm really still looking for things to fill the time.

Recently started blogging, but I blog about Porsche, so not sure it counts as another hobby :burnout:
Also, decided to help a friend try to run for U.S. Senate in 2012. That should be interesting. More on that here http://www.thecandidacy.com

Made it to the top. That sucked...I'll never do that again.

I don't have any patience to fish or golf.....

Buy a Ferrari, or several of them. You will come out of retirement very quickly, Ferrari will give you another goal in life.

Man, I cannot believe how similar some of us are...

I have way too many hobbies.

Among the hobbies is Audio,

I work in the Audio Industry and own a home audio company. www.pnfaudio.com (25% off and free shipping for any Rennlist members who need cables). My company has been reviewed and won an Editor's Choice for 2007 from The Absolute Sound Magazine.

I have three Audio Systems in my home:

Room 1
Ayre
Electrocompaniet
Vienna Acoustics

Room 2
Dynaudio
Sonic Frontiers (TUBE)

Room 3
EAD
Focal
Rel

I also collect and restore Bicycles.

And Lastly, I have a Watch Problem (Anonimo, Panerai, Omega, Dubey)

But first love is P-Cars. I have a 1962 356 and a 1995 993

Very nice rig... Love the wheels. Would love a set like that on my Motorhome...

I love to travel (see my many O/T threads on travel and trips). Then designing custom homes. Is that a hobby or a side job? I'm confused.:confused::confused:
