Reader Doug Cline just bought a new La-Z-Boy and likes the way it feels, but wonders about its effect on the sound. What do you prefer for listening?

head must be above the back of the chair. I tried a leather recliner: nice chair but the head "wings" bit acoustically.

I never fail to astonish me. I spend all this time and money on a system, only to listen lying on a couch with one ear pressed against a cushion.

It's the only SAS (Spouse Approved Seating) that can accomodate the "sweet spot".

An Amish rocker. It's amazingly comfortable. Sometimes I sit on the futon, sometimes I stand, sometimes I lie down, sometimes I dance around. It's all good.

I prefer "other" option - favourite place is from the dunny

Wanted a La-Z-Boy, but with the price of preamps, cables, and other equipment, sacrifices had to be made. Settled for a cheap Sears Roebuck La-Z-Boy copy. I hope to upgrade to a genuine La-Z-Boy at the soonest possible time, unless new and better audio equipment becomes available first.

A comfy chair with good lumbar support and head rest. That will help for long hours of listening.

A bone-white leather dual recliner elevated 1' above the normal floor level on a 4' x 8' platform. Room is 27.5' x 38' x 9' and main speakers are 94" high. Subwoofers are 5' high. This is a dual audio and home-theater system.

Astral projection is my preferred listening method.

actually, a matching loveseat, which is the sweet spot.

Specifically, an Aeron Chair. This is a task chair on wheels that has webbing instead of stuffing.

I sit on the floor much of the time but climb up onto the couch for serious listening

Ummm . . . the sweet spot !!!! Maybe a better question should be: How many people can find the sweet spot?

A director's chair, which can be easily moved for listening.

Who the hell has time to sit?!?!?

I use an office chair on rollers. The back does not extend higher than my shoulders.Therefore, I can fully appreciate the effect of my rear wall of RPG "Skyline" Diffusers.
