It would be really nice if we were to define country of birth, location now and ethnic background, even better if we dispelled the myth of the 50-60 yr old caucasian audiophile user profile, though I doubt it.
So here we go:
Welsh by birth
Live in Hampshire England
Celtic, Caucasian.
Age Fifty three and a half


At present 94% confirm the very stereotype you’re hoping will be dispelled :laughing:

I actually knew it, I just hoping that we could be moving away from it.
Optimistic I guess, realistic, far from it.

‘Diversity’ is a buzzword in these parts of late. Freely admit to not understanding the obsession some have with it.

That’s really great work Slim and quite interesting to see where you guys all are.

(Dom) #16

Well, as it looks many here fit exactly that bill - me included.

It seems to be the hobby of male Pre-Golden agers. Hardly any women here or in audio forums, I wonder if this is PC?!? :blush:

I live in Berlin and am a hybrid - german/english male

Happy to be part of the young and budding audiophile generation! British and under 30!

Its an insight into the population of this forum, no agenda or bias, just inquisitiveness.
How could it not be PC as you put it?

(Dom) #19

That is why I put a little smiley after the sentence. Come on even a Welshman must have a bit of humour left in him :smiley:

I’ve just voted and, surprise, surprise, exactly two-thirds of users are 40+.
They’re the only ones who can afford the bloody subscription fees! :wink:
