    I think Uncle Erik pretty much confirmed my speculation with the member demographics.   Based on the thread postings character in terms of  language, structure, humor, and word substitutions that are used, I do get a sense of the younger crowd.  I'm middle aged, and I wonder if most of the "old farts" are middle aged or close to it. 
    I've read and witnessed some clashing on threads and see a loss of respect towards senior members.  I'm not sure if this is the true reason why the most prolific poster left this site.  Perhaps I'm being overly sensitive again.

    Hmmm. I would have liked to seen the old Head Fi. Alas is my fate in life to always be of the age that I simply miss such things. A pity.

    I do hope we can have the new generation grow up to be worth being around. I doubt I have much anywhere else to go so, I shall stay and see.

    I think most of the old members pop up now and again. Amazing to see JahJahbinks and Pigmode in the same thread today!
    But I see alot of familiar names chiming in every now and then. No Tuberoller, sadly, but you can't have it all.
    The old days? Well there used to be things like people passing around amps and headphones, always a giveaway, and the excitement when a new vendor like, say, Headroom, popped up! I still remember the days when most of what we talked about were portable CD players!

    Yes!  Remember when the Optimus 3400 was the HE-90 of its day?  That's actually how I was introduced to Head-fi.  When Silicon Salvage was selling those NOS D-25S players.

    I stagger in and out of Head-Fi, currently just bored and not really into the hobby all that much.

    Hi all:  Well I am an old fart but new to this site.  I have fond memories of listening to my Optimus 3400 driving my Grado SR 60's.  Very good sounds for cheap.

    Tuberoller, where are you?

    Touche, good sir. Although I think the language barrier may have been a bit of a contributing factor to that.
    In fairness, your example was 4 words as well.

    Take it with a grain of salt.

    Today, there are many more products available and a lot more vendors. There wasn't anywhere as much selection five years ago. Consumers are much better off today.

    The community will continue to grow - the young ones will get older and the discussions will get deeper. I just hope that there will continue to be a stream of new members coming in.

    Another cool thing is that there's going to be a ton of great used gear in another five to ten years. One thing about traditional audiophilia is that you are able to go back through a solid 40-50 years of used stuff, some of it very inexpensive.

    The headphone world has barely ten years of gear to go back through. Sooner or later, newcomers will be able to pick up real bargains and the cost of entry will go down. Hopefully, that will bring in more people.

    Agree with Uncle E. There are products on the market today that are much more refined, and with a wider selection than a few years ago. There are many astute discussions going on that help broaden the understanding of audio products, and audio in general.
    Great to see chadbang. [​IMG]

    Glad to see you are still around. I feel pretty much the same way.
