Good points on the Sonos system though for the family area.

Agree, if streaming all around the house the sonos or squeezebox are brilliant.

I had originally bought it for that reason, but decided we would put together another small system in the library instead.

I agree with you too John. I need to have something tangible for my expense. I also find it hard to part with $$$ on stuff where I'm not getting something of "substance" back. eg paying thousands for wire/plastic. I also like the ritual of putting on cds/vinyl.

Hi Mozart,

I had the opposite problem with my daughter. When see was 2 years old she lent out off my arms and hit her head on my Infinity RS-4 speakers (curved but sharp corners) and got five stitches in her head :Dview_images.php?cat=Speakers&catnick=speakers&cfid=56830&image_id=312639

She is now 20 and you can still see the stitch marks.

Ouch!

Tweeter domes and kids don't get along together, so I always buy softdome tweeters. :confused:

My son (5) can operate ARTA quite well. Actually he's been a great help. While I change the xo he'd click impulse -> record -> FR. He also notice the different graphs they make. Hopefully involving him now will shield him from future cable traders ;)

I hope when I have kids they will be nothing like me. Apparently I was notorious for climbing on top of the speakers and jumping onto the couch. Remote controls would always be stuffed into the vcr player. I was a very naughty boy :confused: Loved pulling everything apart and then trying to put them back together again.

My wife was a little monster too when she was a child, so God help us both. Locks will be on the theatre room ;)

You see, for me, having a dedicated room, no one cares how much gear is in there or how things look, or how much realestate the vinyl collection takes up

I would love to have a dedicated room, but an inner city townhouse puts limits on space, which is one of the reason I went down the music in any room, streaming approach.

The only room that is purely mine, is the garage, which is not a good environment for hifi equipment and is taken up by my other hobby, brewing. I do however have music streaming to the garage also.

Cheers

MAH

yes I am paranoid about the retribution that mother nature will unleash on me for my childhood days....

You couldn't blame a child for jamming fistfuls of icecream into a speaker after they've overheard that 'they are the cones'.....could you? :confused:
