Ah, very fun topic. Its cool to see what others are listening to and what inspired them. Personally I would consider anybody who has a deep appreciation for music and music reproduction to be an audiophile, regardless of how you do that.Don’t use music to listen to your system.
Listen to the music you like. Hard stop.

Remember the spot well. Would always stop at Dingleberry's or Goldenrod"s on the way back home to do some more "shopping".Bob James...One Mint Julip...off his album "Three"
I was at the Audio Warehouse on South Dixie in Dayton...summer of 1977...Ed, my salesman played this song over a set of the massive new Infinity towers. One of those moments I'll always remember.
WOW, I was the same, Supertramp, Crime of the Century was what sparked me as well. Still remember the hair on the back of my neck standing tall. Been searching for that 1976 moment since. Just saw Rodger Hodgson at his 1st USA tour in Feb this year. He was so tight and tack on. So thankful I was able to do this before all changed.Supertramp Crime of the Century on my friend's parents stereo with Klipsch Heresy speakers cranked up loud. Another friend's Dad had Klipsch Horn's massive towers in his lower level. Been hooked ever since.
Had a quadraphonic 8 speaker, 8 track set up with bean bag chairs in my van.
the mighty Skinny Puppy....
Step 4 (no longer a teenager, it's the early '90s and music is going off in many creative directions so I dropped a few grand on a good system) - Coil "Love's Secret Domain" and Skinny Puppy "Last Rights"
