So maybe, for the sake of parity, someone should publish a HiFi magazine hosted solely by women.
The reviews would go something like this:
While busy cooking the dinner I heard music coming from the living room with a greater clarity than ever before. Immediately I rushed into the living room to tell my husband that I could hear a difference and find out what had changed. My husband said he'd bought some new speaker cables so I told him that "They sound so much clearer and have really opened up the soundstage."
It would be 200 pages of "what's wrong with my iPod headphones you mentalist...."
Nah, it'd be 200 pages of rushing in from another room to tell their husband they could hear "night and day differences".

Chintz is good, but only if you've put all the bull**** behind you:
