The 12 Steps Of Audioholics Anonymous


Recommended Posts

Hi im mello, and im an Audioholic

 

 

and these are the 12 Steps

 

 

  1. We admitted we were powerless over Audio - that our wives had become unmanageable.
  2. Came to believe that a Power Cord greater than ourselves could restore lost sound
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of Marc, as we understood Him.
  4. Made a searching and fearless hardware inventory and sought help and advice on what to upgrade.
  5. Admitted to Marc, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrong set-ups.
  6. Were entirely ready to have SNA remove all these defects and Audio dont's.
  7. Humbly asked a sparky to remove our old cables and rewire the entire house.
  8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed along The Journey, and became willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. Continued to take deliveries via Australia Post, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it
  11. Sought through posts and emails to improve our set-ups and to keep in constant contact with emerging technologies, when we understood them
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to Audioholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Hi mello, I'm Peacewise and I'm an audioholic.

 

1.  I admit I am powerless over computer audio's intermittent, yet eternally changing updates, that my wife cannot be managed as she manages me.

2. I cried when Saint P. Graves told me how expensive a 7m quality powercord could cost, for I knew I would suffer scurvy eating poorly to save for that humble restoration of lost sound.

3. I seek the wisdom of He who is Marc, in the Word of SNA.

4. My courageous trials whilst Journeying with audioholism are outlined in my showcase thread for all fellow Seekers.

5.  Admission to others is to free my soul.

6.  I'm scared, too scared to face all that the Word of SNA would do to my system.

7.  After our ceiling collapsed in the dark winter of twenty twelve our electrics were NOT upgraded, simply confirmed safe - for we are poor and live meekly.

8.  No, no, I cannot think about such a list, I've got to stop now.

Hi mello, I'm Peacewise and I'm an audioholic.
 

 

Hi @@peacewise, a belated welcome, :welcome:

 

i was just doing an end of month audit and discovered i paid $700 for a new universal bluray player based on its CD playback sound qualities alone this month, so you could say i might have fallen off the wagon and had a few sips of indulgence.

Looking for a BluRay player and picking something more expensive because of its audio quality is something i have to work on a bit more

 

might take this opportunity to also welcome a potential future member @

(soon as he gets the costs for the custom acoustics)

conversation went something like this

 

"im looking for a cheap bluray player"

"this one has an awesome onboard DAC for CD playback"

"how much?"

"only about 7 times what you can afford"

"ill take it!!!"

Is this going to become one of those fight club threads.

So what are you saying. That i should give away everything except my ipod Shuffle and my etymotics.

You know thats probalbly not such a bad idea. I'm not going to do though, after all, what will define me if i don't own very expensive hifi. I'll be just like everybody else. I'm not good at being normal. Everyone else seems to do normal just a little bit better. for example, Brad Pitt is more of an attractive Alfa male than i am, annoying but sadly true.

"You are not your hifi."

Yeah, shut up Brad. There, i said it..........and i'm not fighting anyone.

no, Briz, its not a Scientology cult where you have to give your shuffle to Tom Cruise, nor is it a fight club for Alfa males. it can be a refuge for buyers regret, any hangover from a recent purchase or simply a place to acknowledge other tragics

 

i hear ya, and welcome :welcome:

"You are not your hifi."

This is a breath taking divergence from my reality.

Trotsky was assainated with an ice pick for less-opposing "socialism in one country".

I fear for your sanity and your life in that order.

Oh kab!.....all ex-dj's suffer a death of a 1000 scratches. What madness has caused your eratic behaviour?

Do you become an audiophile when you purchase a $1000 USB Cable (insert own example of purchases that your friends would say "You paid HOW much for that, I can get one at Harvey Norman for $2?" about) or only when you stop feeling guilty about it. And does this mean a Catholic may only become an audiophile after a trip to church?
