A profound thought has just occurred to me
Your age should be used to set the volume on your HiFi or home cinema system. It just gradually gets better.

RE: A profound thought has just occurred to me
It is a profound thought, but doesn't follow real life?

When you are in your teens and 20's you go to loud concerts, and want 110dB. If 20 somethings played their music at a volume of 25dB, it might explain why MP-3 is good enough. Tongue

As we get older, some people might want to tone it down, and play the music in the 50-60 volume range, and then as your hearing gets worse, you turn it up louder. Then the wife asks you to turn it down, so you are now playing your music in the 40 volume range

As you get into your 80's and 90's the nurses take away your stereo. Rolleyes

Something to look forward to?

What about those of us who use the relative volume control method? 0dB needs to be a set age then work up to it

Oh dear. Just turned 50, but was at a gig on Tuesday - Black Star Riders at the Rockmenders Northampton. It was very loud and very sweaty. Does that make me 20 again (TBH I'll never grow up)

RE: A profound thought has just occurred to me
I'm sorry but I've been known to play in the 70s for some time (and in the 80s with the original KK). I'm not likely to wait another decade to do so again!

Then again, right now I'm playing in the greens and yellows.
