Currently designed around Sylvia and 2 of her friends.  She has her own room with two crates, all season Christmas lights, four beds, and 30 stuffed animals.  No audio system yet.

And a rescue as well. Good on you!

So if I crank up some John Fahey solo acoustic guitar on this last system, just how big would the guitar appear to be?

Here's a great link if one wants to see the most expensive, ugliest Hifi gear all in one place. Why does it all get uglier as the price goes up? Do extremely rich people have worse taste? Boggling...

@The Computer Audiophile Chris, I can't stand the fact that your new speakers have been the object of jokes on this thread. IMO you deserve good looking speakers and I think many here will not only agree but would also be willing to pitch in to get you some decent looking transducers. As for your Wilsons - I think you don't have to worry - you can always donate them to some poor kid who only knows the sound of his cell phone speaker.. 

Hereby I kindly ask everyone who is ready to pitch in to upvote this post as a sign of his willingness to take part in this project. 9_9

Too good :~)

I wonder if the guy in white ever used this photo on a singles website?

He’s Ross Lovegrove. See here:

I would imagine he is considerably more interesting than most people on dating sites.
