Inspired by my Electric Ladyland Experience, I got up from my living room seating position and headed into my Mac Pro to find the UK naked chick cover art for the album and returned back to see the ladies of Polydoor Records in London in all of their glory.

Yet there is a catch.

What Hi-Fi?

This system would start not just my passion for audio, but would lead to a career in specialty audio that included an early gig selling gear at Bryn Mawr Stereo en route to even more high end locales in Southern California like Christopher Hansen Ltd.
