Wait, you said you were single. If you're single...then there's no WAF involved.

He didn't say single, just no kids. Big difference

In Jinx's defence, this is the kind of mistake I would make. Tall speakers, couch in the way, hmm, doesn't seem to be a problem, mind registers "couch isn't a problem". Next set of speakers are not so tall, but mind still says "couch isn't a problem" until one day the light comes on.

I'm just not so likely to post about my "finest moments" unless there is an element of humour in addition to my own mistakes...

Yeah,...I've been living with the same situation of stuff in the my case it's a fireplace and speakers in CABINETS

(WAF ya know)

Was really gettin' down on my system too, especially after listenin' to one of my Grandsons' CDs which he said sounded better on the diningroom system,.....and it did I then listened to it on earphones in the main system and the missing stuff was back!! So I listened near-field on the M50s and it was there, but nothing spectatular.

So this morning; not being able to sleep, I snuck out to the dining room and slid the diningroom table and chairs out into the livingroom, pulled the wires off the back of the Brand "X" speakers residing there and plugged the M50s in their place.

Oh Believe me Jinx I know what the WAF factor is all about, otherwise I'd own some special finish 80's with EP600's.

Man, I'm glad I don't have to worry about WAF. The only issue my wife has ever had was my lp's thrown about. Now that she loves vinyl so much she not only doesn't complain, she goes out and buys vinyl for us. She didn't even flinch when I bought a $380.00 Dynavector 10x5 cartridge for my turntable last week.

Don't sweat it Jinx, we all make mistakes. My biggest was removing the metal strip between the binding posts.

Also, my couches are always moved for optimum placement (meaning out of the way) when I want to do some serious movie watching or music listening.
