This is too good not to share. The excerpt below is from a poster on another audio forum somewhere in cyberspace:
I want to re-purpose the dining room, gut it and turn it into a listening room (how often do you use a dining room?). I met with extreme resistance from the “zoning committee”. LV is the fine lady that tries to put up with me, I'm JL:
LV: why do you need a full blown audio system in the living room? We already have two other systems (full blown HT system upstairs in the family room and a dedicated two channel system for the bedroom).
JL: you forgot the system I installed outside in the pool area
LV: *I can’t repeat what she said *
Conversation that took place last night..
LV: what are you doing????
JL: drinking and making a new set of 10 gauge speaker wires. Silver-over-copper, they’re gonna sound awesome!!
LV: why did you buy more wire, you already have four boxes of wires stacked up in the laundry room
JL: these are better
LV: there’s bits of wire all over the floor, are you gonna vaccum?
JL: maybe later, I’m focused. DH Labs Q10 Signature wire is beautiful
LV: *shakes her head*
LV: those things look like hoses! I don’t want wire strewn across the room like that!
JL: I find them attractive
LV: drill a hole through the floor and run them under the house
JL: the crawl space under the house is likely very cramped, and I’m pretty certain there are vermin under there
LV: Man up
JL: I’m not sure it’s a good idea to have this fine speaker wire exposed to humidity and such
LV: The %@ wires have to go!
LV: This is NOT a recording studio, it’s our home!!
JL: a recording studio would be off the charts awesome!!!
LV: I’ll beat you senseless with your wires if you don’t get this fixed
JL: care for a glass of wine?
LV went off to work early today as usual, while she’s out I unpacked and set up my Furutech room tuning panels behind my speakers to improve the sound further. Now when I blast Slipknot, System of a Down, and Tool everything sounds SO much better. What are the odds they’ll stay in place more than 15 minutes when she comes home?
