    I'm Mike.

    Default So I emailed my wife at work

    It went as follows......

    Me:

    "Thinking of selling off my turntable and just using Streaming to listen to music using the iPad to control everything.

    Do you have any objections to me selling the turntable and my record collection?"

    Wife:

    "Why would you want to sell it all I like having the records I think it sounds completely different to CDs or on another system."

    She talks a lot of sense that woman

    ...or an unselfish woman, who genuinely cares for her husband and his happiness, not just hers - i.e. a proper wife! No man should marry less.

    But yes, as Dan says, Mike, she's a goody, so hold onto her

    You're exactly right Marco, I don't know what I'd do without her



    Probably buy a Sonos connect

    You know what Mike I said something along those lines to my wife recently. Her answer was 'No way too many good nights in playing records for that to happen'! She doesn't share my anal retentivness about it all but definitely gets a kick out of the records and turntable as do a fair few of our female friends. Maybe it's not so male centric after all.

    Just asked my partner the same question: "Do you think I should sell my records?". Answer: "No, of course not - they are your pleasure".

    (The question was academic, as I have absolutely no intention of selling them. But it was nice to have a response similar to that from mikeyb's wife.)
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I guess it's as good a test as any, as to whether or not your 'chosen one' is worthy of the position!
