RE: What does your wife or girlfriend use to listen to music?

My wife uses a Studer A807 or an EMT 950 or a Denon DN C640 into a Urei 6290 into EV Patrician 800's to listen to music.

RE: What does your wife or girlfriend use to listen to music?

My wife listens mostly to a Philips Fidelio iPod/iPhone dock.  She can't tell the difference between that and the system in my sig.

I kid you not.

Some of the Philips Fidelio kit gets very good reviews...

My wife wouldn't know how to access music on any of our equiptment, she listed to what I do. Or uses the radio in the car, she can operate that.lol

Just to redress the balance after that last post, I would like to say that my wife is cleverer than I am, works harder and earns more money than I do.  :wall:

It was a very astute move marrying her!

this is true you have kept us in the dark how is he getting on ?

 

Hi guys, and thanks for asking  Smile You're right, he's 10 months now, a year old in July. He keeps us very busy but is worth all the hard work. He's a right little character, very funny and curious and interactive with people of all ages. He's been crawling since 7 months and is threatening to walk now. Happily he mostly ignores the AV kit, save for the odd twiddle of the volume on the Onkyo and once accidentally having a pull at the DVD tray on the panasonic  Wink

 

Have literally thousand of photos, this one sums up his cheeky character quite well:

So it has turned out, though at the time I didn't have my astuteness hat on; back then it was love (and still is). :love:

Hi Ben

 

thanks for sharing the intimacy of your HOME!!!

He looks like a very happy Boy and with a nice smile as well! 

Regardering curiosity, huum, if I do remember right, with 10 year I pull apart the Living Room color TV, screw by screw, it was a Korting with a 61 or 66 cm wide... My father had to call the TV tecnitian to put it together... 

And yes i'm a cancer as well...  :roll: Wink

all the best for the BenLaw Family! 

 

:cheers:

Thanks again Outlaw  Smile Yes, his destructive tendencies have many years to take effect yet! As long as he's happy I hope that I'll cope. As for the room, Clodagh picked the colour scheme but I've found my hifi and av searching and researching skills have come in handy for tracking down perfect material for wallpaper and curtains - transferable skills  Wink

 

Cheers,

Ben

Don't shiver.  2nd one is a PoP compared to the first.  After all, your lives are already over...

RE: What does your wife or girlfriend use to listen to music?

:grin: Presumably tho it's a PoP cos you end up being comparatively neglectful? I'm sure I'd be fine with that when it happened, but right now it seems harsh.

Not wishing to put down my wife, but she is quite happy to share the music we like. We have been married for 31 years and we are both in our late 40's. So we have experienced the same music tastes as we have got older.  

I bought her a mobile phone and its never charged, I bought her a Kindle and I have to charge that for her so she can play games.

Not thats she useless, far from it. Shes brought up 4 lovely children, fostered another 3 and adopted one more.  Technology is not her thing.

But we have alot of music from our past that has good memories, from vinyl that as a young husband I had to sell to put petrol in the car, and the tapes that worn in the car stereo and got chewed up, that I need to replace one day (probably vinyl when I get the player).
