The Internet is home to all manner of bizarre fetish subset groups. You like to see midgets swinging from a trapeze while smoking French cigarettes? Great. You just need to decide if you’re in the mood for your midgets to be with or without full body tattoos and piercings. Or perhaps you prefer to watch obese elderly ladies washing motorcycles while wearing camouflage. Or just stare at a webcam pointed to warehouses filled with cardboard boxes filled with old medical records. Whatever your kink, the Internet has got you covered. In spades. Scary, scary spades.

One subset that I’ve mostly ignored is the “unboxing” fetish. It appears that many people out there really get off on watching people get new electronics — generally cell phones and new i-devices; oh, the Interwebs were just a flurry with people unboxing their new iPad2s. And just because you’ve watched someone unboxing a 16 GB WiFi model doesn’t mean that you should miss even one exciting second of a 64 GB 3G ATT unbox! In white! — and then watch every detailed, micro step of the unpacking process. They will video and then narrate while they actually go through the process of opening the packaging. Now, they don’t review the gear. Oh no! These people are just about discussing and dissecting the opening and unboxing procedure. How is it packed? Did they use tape or that paper and glue stuff? What kinds of materials come in the box? Did they accidentally slip in an extra pack of the silica desiccant crystals for absorption? Did they use rubber bands or twist-ties for the cables? Oh, the excitement of it all! (I’m guessing that the people making these videos just have God-awful boring lives, and that they are looking for anything to break up the monotony of another day in mom’s basement and probably have nothing actually worthwhile to say. And, as you know, I’m never at a shortage of things to say…)

So, I thought I’d treat you to a bit of AV unboxing porn here today. I got a couple of new Meridian components shipped to me for an upcoming review. One of them even arrived priority overnight on a Saturday. (Yes, you know how I love my Saturday delivery! It’s that extra, super-special way that manufacturer’s show me they care enough to send the very best.)

Click over to see the rest of the unboxing sexiness. Go on. It doesn’t hurt to look…
