Has anyone else developed an emotional attachment to their monitors?

    I thnk anyone who gets a well sounding tune done on their monitors will treasure them afterwards. but really, if they'd break down it would make me emotional so...

    Mine are shite, but i fuckin love them :)

    Had them for 2 years get some wicked sound out of them because i know them so well
    Feeling the air coming out of the holes when a really subby tune we are working is rolling out mmmmmmm

    really need new ones though, everything we make is crossed refferenced with various monitors, but i still always start out on my samsons :)

    yeah i definitely have an attachment to my monitors (hr824s mk1) - so much so that i continue to use them in a room that is far too small for them, even though i have a pair of ns-10s in the same room.

    plus they dont make them any more and apparently they are better than the mk2 so i have even more reason to treasure them. if anyone broke them i think i would murder them.

    A fly landed on my monitor yesterday. I hunted the little fuck down with a can of deoderant and sprayed it to death.
