Beloved equipment

What's up with sellers describing their equipment as "beloved" as in "I'm selling my beloved power amp..." Are people forming an emotional relationship with a bunch of electric circuits housed in metal cases? I mean it's cool with me if that's your thing, but it does strike me as a little fetish-like. I wonder if anybody will admit to it, but are audiophiles bringing home flowers for their preamps and putting them in fancy lingerie?
WOW!!! Try to picture the reviews that might generate.
I found that pre-amps are just too fickle for flowers but a nice pair of sheer stockings used as grill cloth for speakers causes electron excitement and increases flux !!
You never know where those tubes have been!

Have you been staking out my house?
My tubes are blushing.
Don't anthropomorphize your amplifiers. They hate that.
have any of you found that wet flowers given to amps increased damping-??---sorry just couldn't help it !!!
"Is that an EL34 in your tube socket or are you just happy to see me?"
*****Mine like it S/E*****
my thorens jubilee and i are going to vegas for the weekend to make up. i've cheated on it for several years with an oracle paris.
I used to think of them as "just speakers," but once they went outside the boundaries of the system, began helping others less fortunate than them by being active in the community and touching the lives of others......well, when I now say "beloved", I'm speaking for my whole community.
I love my speakers' fat bottom end and my tube amps
get me all hot.

THAT's why they call him the "Audio Pimp"!
The flip side is getting divorced...
Who wants "the 'dumped' for another sexy beauty" stuff anyway.
I want virgins to sacrifice on the audio altar.
You want virgins! Now that's funny. Between the power cords and the interconnects your electronics has seen quite a bit of breaking in, if you know what I mean.
The 'most erotic' connection is the 1/4" stereo jack! on the front panel.
Just thinking about it... OOOhhhhHHHHh
(Is this porno-thought allowed???)
I always use a mini-jack by the way!
Liz: What on earth do you plan on putting in that 1/4"
hole, my kind man?
My beloved 'horn' has been known to make some ear piercing cat type wailing on occasion (rare occasion, I might add). I always get the gold medal. Nobody remembers those that come second eh?
Oo-er missus.
You should see my La Luce TT with a scarlet color vinyl being played... beats Giesel in lingerie by a mile.
I really love my Linn LP 12, circa 1991. I know there are better tables, but it has a sound that has grown very dear to me. It is pure comfort.
KEF 104s--they still lumber on....
My Sansui sp-5500 speakers and my Cayin Audio 265ai and Cary CAD-300sei Integrated amps!
What's wrong with loving your equipment?
