I'm also reminded of World of McIntosh in NYC. This is more of a showpiece and than a showroom, but it again demonstrates that hifi  can be integrated into a home, and more importantly, into the lives of those in the home.

"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

"Brilliant idea - wonder how difficult it would be to "DIY" something like that. (Source the acoustically transparent material and the acoustic panels, have the printing done from photos you've taken....)

 

There is a printing shop here that will print up to an 8x10 on any fabric you bring in... oh yeah, that’s 8 ft. X 10 ft.  The material costs more than the printing and is readily available.
