Then, I started thinking: sure looks big. But being a lover of analog, I still considered getting this thing. And then my wife added some common sense: "When are you going to wear this?" she said without a moment's hesitation. "To the audio club meetings and...and..."
Well, she was making a very good point. Would I wear it while listening? Maybe, but only for a week or so. Would I wear it to club meetings? Yes, definitely. So that's once a month.
Well, you get the point. We as audiophiles are always on the lookout for that next new little toy, especially one that no one else has. I thought to myself "In all honesty, do you REALLY want this?"
I thought of glancing down at my wrist and chuckling loudly. But common sense prevailed and I resisted. I can hear the difference when I put spikes on my speakers, I am blissed when I add polystyrene capacitors to my crossover network, I am thrilled at a new piece of vintage vinyl, and I am blissed with a new cartridge. But this watch is another story.
Funny how I still think about getting it, so what's that all about? I guess I'm just a hopeless romantic. Wonder if I can upgrade the tonearm...or the cartridge...or...or...
