Well I am a Boomer. I do not plan on passing soon but of course I can’t just say that. you are right though. the millennials or whatever are not into this stuff. Our house has ancient Persian rugs worth millions each, Vases from Ming era ETC. they have no interest in substance. They eat fast food. We have a cook staff. I understand not everyone lived like that anyhow but now no one has any interest regardless. You are correct it is Blu tooth speakers. Monster, DR. DRE. I have the WAMM Chronosonic. Then we have a theater. Not a home theater. An actual theater. Imax. I am not bragging. I am just saying money or not it is the end of an era. There will be no more $5,000 stereos let alone Million dollar ones. It is sad to me but I will be gone. My grandchildren or greatgrandchildren will sell it all for nothing Our estate probably worth 1/3rd what it once was. No one lives in a 48 room home anymore. I know, pity the rich guy but it makes me sad. Not me personally but the end of substance.
I say get the speakers. I am sure they sound wonderful. I would not be so caught up on the finish. Lacquer is actually always a good choice. If I saw a deal I would take whatever it was. Many times I took something. Believe it or not I am a miser! I go to flea markets! You never know what you will find. The thing is I know what I am looking for. I might find a pocket watch for $10 that is worth 10 grand! In fact it really happened. I use PS Audio’s trade in. I did not know a Z06 is that expensive? You mean to say it is a quarter of a million? I drive a GT-R Nismo It just has a tune because I lease it. I put down $20,000 and the payment is $3,400 a month. I do not like to purchase a car.2 years and give it back. could you please show me this Z06? It is better than the ZR1? Maybe I will get it in October when my lease is up.
I hope I did not offend anyone. I am just running my mouth. The main thing I was trying to say is that the young people today have effectively abolished entire industries. I find it sad. I really was not trying to brag. I was just making a reference point. I truly mean no offence. If I hurt anyone’s feelings go ahead and let me know. I did not mean it that way. I just realized it could be taken that way. If so my sincere apologies.
