    Default Women Hifi owners...

    Donít know why, but of late Iíve seen a lot of theoretical lady Hifi owners selling stuff on the Facebook Market place, except Iím thinking they donít know that much about what theyíre flogging!

    For instance, one lady was selling speaker stands ĎWith holes in the bases so that you can screw them to the floor so they wonít move.
    Good idea actually, but not what the holes are intended for!

    Another was selling a stereo amp, when viewed from the back was a 5.1 channel AV receiver.

    On a similar issue, my wife was moaning that she couldnít turn down the kitchen system I had in my previous house, upon closer inspection it seemed she was trying to turn down the microwave oven!
    Well I suppose one circular knob looks like another! 😂

    Perhaps they're not really the owners but selling for a "partner", thinking it somehow makes it more believable?

    Ignorance of hifi, what it is, what it does is not a gender issue but simply an issue of people not knowing anything about it. Everyone on this forum at one time knew nothing about anything hifi related because we were not interested in it, then we were, and learn't about it.

    Or an ex partner to get revenge.

    Or maybe it's some hairy-arsed bloke who thinks people will fall for the 'one lady owner' spiel.

    Saying that I did buy an Alphason rack and an Arcam amp once from a lady who advertised the stuff on Gumtree. It was her son's gear from when he lived at home and she just wanted rid of it.

    I think we're getting to the point when it might also be wives selling their late husbands' gear .. at least if a recent show I went to is any gauge. I'm 52 and was by a long way one of the youngest people in the building.
