44) You buy your first pair of hi-fi speakers on reputation alone (quality and service) without hearing them and realize any future upgrade will be coming from the same place

+1,000 Bill.              Ht 3s were just starting their ascent in 2007 when I pulled the trigger sight unseen

45). Your wallet is nearly as happy as your ears are
46)  your local audio dealer shakes his head every time you walk in the store, he knows if you upgrade anything, it's not going to be to his mega buck speakers
47) you decide to go to RMAF to hear just how much the "highly touted competition" missed the musical point
48) your friends and audiophile club members no longer say "who?", "what line is that?" Now it's "can i borrow them for a few days"
49) the movie, super bowl party or latest music marathon always ends up being at your house
50) your response is "no, sorry, there is no sub, haven't missed it"

51). No longer off in the other room,  Your wife is next to you transfixed.
52). Your kids are starting to tell their friends that an ipod and beat's doesn't cut it
53). The only merry go round you have to deal with is on the playground
54) as nice as they look, you swear someone stoled your speakers as they disappear in the room so well

56. Listening to Miles Davis' My Funny Valentine (In Concert) SACD and actually having goose bumps because I feel like I'm in the audience :)!!!
These speakers never fail to amaze me in my modest listening room. Buy speakers from another company............. I don't think so ;).

57) oh, there are 4 voices not two on that beautiful layered harmony.
58) my God, the sax player just turned his horn to the left of the microphone
59) did I just get a huge home renovation? I swear the sound goes three feet beyond the front wall and a good 5 on the sides
60) I can practically look out the windows of Rudy Van Gelder's Blue Note Studio

61) If you are still amazed when you play a record or CD.
62) If when you buy a better piece of audio electronics the sound makes a big improvement.
63) If people keep bugging you to leave your speakers to them in your will.
64) If the neighbors to your condo hate you.

64)  :D

65). Like comparing fine wines, you swap cables and it's obvious. Bitter, smooth or aged to perfection

66) a post you've made sends inquisitive yellow site masses to find out about those speakers
67) a storm is coming and you cover your speakers first
68) you dream in bubinga, makore, burled walnut and crotch mahogany

70). Your wife's closet is full of shoes, the best furniture in the house is something you can listen to, and she now green lights your audio hobby. Win win

76) It takes at least two people to move your speakers.
77) The nicest furniture that you have is your speakers.
78) You post pictures of your shipment delivery man.
79) Touching your speaker's finish is a sensual experience.

80)  the Steinway is jealous
82)  your cables get to join in for some fun
83)  harmonics and ambience, they do exist  - I had only heard about that in books and heard it live
84)  I thought everything was assembly line in the Motor City, who found the carpenters and audio artisans?
