are your kids interested

does anyone out there have young kids that are interested in hifi,i started with my dad about ten,and loved it, 40 now,and kids love to help me ,just wondering about yall,my son 9 years old starting to read the mags that come in asking stuff,kinda cool
My 15 y.o. daughter is interested. Sings in choir and understands low versus high fidelity. She has the best stereo among her friends by absorbing my cast offs when I upgrade. (Rega mira integrated, Musical Fidilty E624 CDP, Yamaha T-70 tuner, ACI Sapphire III speakers). Whether she will be an audiophile remains in question but a good song in high fidelty will make her cry so there is hope.
My kids love the sound. I had built a preety decent HT sytem with a good CD player for them. They prefer the 2 Channel for music. Now i have to share.
I have 2 kids and I think that the younger one (7) maybe will be into it. He picks up my mags sometimes and love to sing along with the music. My older one is not very intersted in music. One time he came in and sat down in my sound room with a CD player and a pair head phones on. I was shocked, I did tell him I was supprized that he would rather listen to a 2 doller pair of head phones insted of a 25K audio system.

sometimes when im going crazy about it not sounding right,my 2 year old and 3 year old will come in an dance and run around reminding me its the music that feeds our soul,not the 60 hz hump
Bbaxley2, yes, but it's probably the 60Hz hump that's making him want to dance around the room... :)
I have one kid, a son, who is now 21. At aboaut 17 or so he finally began to see/hear what I was into and since then we can talk about stereo/2 channel only, for hours. He likes a lot more power and bass while I prefer the highs/treble and not being driven back by the sound. He has built a decent system and we share a subscription to Stereophile and AudioExpress
I have 2 sons - both love music, but strictly Rock/Rap. They haven't gained an appreciation for Jazz, Classical, or other genre's I listen to. We do share enthusiasm for some rock groups though, and we "steal" each others cd's now and then.

As for equipment, they haven't bought in. Partly because of the money, but I have multiple rooms fitted with pretty decent rigs, and can only be in one at a time - they've never shown an interest in using them. The younger one is probably the most passionate about music, and has the most diverse tastes, but considers my passion (fanaticism?) to be over the top and too time consuming (huh?). He's content to listen to his $100 receiver, with Polk monitors and a Radio Shack subwoofer (gotta have that thump if you're playing Rap). The older one has his BS in Elecrical Engineering now and has shown slight interest in my dedicated listening room. While in college he spent a good deal of time tinkering with his car stereo, including designing/building custom sub enclosures (gotta have that thump), but he hasn't pursued anything "purist" in his own system, though his room system isn't too bad for the money - most of it was gifts from me. He's also a guitar player and now that he's employed with a salary has upgraded his guitar amp and tweeks that now and then.
My boys are 13 and 15 and both are musicians. They each have their own computer with NHT Pro powered monitors and sub. So they stay in their rooms a lot of the time but if they feel a need to visit the kitchen, on goes the I-Pod. The only time they take much interest in my wonderful speakers is when the plasma between them is illuminated.
The apple fell near the tree O.K. --- but it rolled downhill.
As kids normally do, my 13 year old daughter simply takes the system for granted. Her favourite group is From First to Last, truly awful noise, so a good system for her his pearls to swine. My 19 year old son likes to listen to Radiohead on vinyl, but thinks that the amount of money asked for high-end stuff is insane.
