Oh, I'm not exactly sure, either, but Spokane is a good couple of hours away from me. If you find yourself over this way, you're more than welcome to come check out my system. My room leaves a lot to be desired, which is why I haven't officially made myself available for auditions, but I certainly wouldn't turn anyone away who was interested in hearing my system.

Seeking: Screw all the electronic answers to your volume problems. None of them allows 'loud.'

When I lived in an private apt. building in grad school, I left a note on all my adjacent neighbors' doors to let me know the best times to use my stereo w/o interfering with their serenity.

Of course, I had to try to be home when I knew they weren't, but it was way better (to me) than a volume compromise.

Eventually, they even left ME notes when they were going to be out of town. Then again, I was having sex with each of them, so maybe that was a mitigating factor?


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

my way of doing it is almost the same.
i visit those 2 neighbors who share a wall with me and ask them at what hours they sleep, and if it would bother them to hear some noise, sometimes loud ones for some seconds or maybe minutes during the hours when they're up.

usually they greet my request with a smile and arrangements are easily done.
it happened only once in 20 or so years that a neighbor, as soon as he would hear a weak little "something" from me, would yell, saying that "my hearing is so acute and sensitive that the least bit of noise hurts my ears".
i referred him to the homeowner who told him to rent a flat somewhere else.

the situation now is that i can do whatever i want from 8 am to 11 pm.
if i had not discussed this with them, i would never feel at ease listening to either music or movies, even thought i never "crank it up", but always use "realistic" levels.

I shoulda talked to you first, before I, umm, err, compromised my integrity.
