Oh yes, I did. I've regressed through time and went back to my Jeff Foxworthy Stereo Stage--you know what I mean:
"We may be starvin' but we got tunes!"
In fact, we have a lot of them, and we can play them really loud...
Meet the Pioneer SX-1250. 160 RMS watts of loud. Enough loud that OSHA wants to have a few words with me.
Enough loud that Son, upon visiting the Holy of Holies (otherwise known as the basement) decided that ear muffs were a good idea. I can't help it if the kid doesn't care for Def Leppard. (Pour Some Sugar On Me, if you're curious. He missed my Joe Elliot impersonation. God, I loved the 80s.)
I traded someone a small TV for it. I think I won that one.
Some men, when they hit that dread mid-life crisis, buy a sports car, bail on the family and get a trophy wife. Me, I buy guns and stereo equipment. Anyone know where I can score a pair of JBL 4312s?
Edit, 1/25/2010 2003: Found 'em. They'll be here in a few days. Eardrums beware!
