    Watch this documentary which lovingly portrays a group of middle-aged uncompromising hifi enthusiasts (some would definitely call them geeks) in a small town in southern Sweden – the Golden Ears Club.

    The members challenge each other to settle who’s got the superior hifi setup at home. The winner gets to keep the desirable Golden Ear Trophy – until he is challenged again.

    The dialogue is in Swedish, but it’s worth watching at least the beginning of the film even if you don’t understand Scandinavian – just to see the guys displaying their setups.

    The above link seems to be down now, but you can still watch the main protagonist of the documentary wipe the dust off his set using an imported ostrich feather duster here.

    I have seen this documentary. It is great! However, a huge part of the fun is the way they talk... these are very geeky fellows but they are aware of it and displays a great sense of humour. Me and a friend watched this thing last year and still quotes several lines from it for fun.
