Father's Day For An Audiophile


.
Have any of you ever received an audiophile component as a gift for any holiday, or as a birthday present? Before I got married, my girlfriends knew that I was nuts about stereo equipment. After I got married, my wife and now grown kids knew of my love for stereo equipment because they had to live with it. All of my siblings know of my love of stereo equipment. Yet, I've never gotten a piece of audio equipment as a present.

Obviously no one here has ever watched the original Cosby Show. He always made a point that his kids always bought him very disapointing presents for his birthday, Christmas or father's day. Very funny. Most people I find, buy gifts that they like and not necessarly what the giftee wanted or needed, because quite often, they never ask. If a person pays attention to the other, there are hints everywhere as to what to buy. High end expensive equipment would be a mistake for the untrained novice gifter to buy unless you told them you wanted it. But items related to your hobby(s) show they are paying attention and care about you and your hobby. It could be music you love, artwork associated with your hobby, concert tickets, something that shows they noticed. Buy as Bill Cosby always said, it was typically a really bad tie.

I know guys that have gotten Rolexes, automobiles, big-screen tv's and boats as presents.

I do believe if we made specific lists of the things we desired (and where to get them)....we'd probably get better results.

....also, better include a price sheet with your list.

Have been quite fortunate and share here not to say this is better than others, but that I'm so thankful for my family. This year our daughter gave me tickets to a Peter White/Rick Braun/Euge Groove concert at the One World Theater here Austin, TX....my son (also an audio enthusiast) a 180g reissue of Led Zeppelin + 180g The Black Keys. Being thankful!
