    So say to her that you really want to stop swapping and loosing money and the answer is to buy a special pair that you know will be great forever, and go for it.

    Of wives? Genius, effectively doubling the limit of speakers deemed acceptable. Assuming they are as equally (in)tolerant.

    I see you have 3 systems Chris, does this mean you have 3 wives.

    Haha, depending on said wives tolerance to such things which I would say probably stops somewhere between two and three pairs of medium level (intrusively speaking) speakers. I'm probably (no definitely) pushing my luck given the dimensions of two of my pairs....

    Having said that I technically have zero wives although she has been putting up with me over nearly two decades now and we are bound by child!

    I wonder how many pairs would actually be reasonable grounds for divorce.... I don't think Al is married is he.... ��

    I think a prerequisite for our condition is a rather understanding better half and indeed a decent sized abode, or indeed both!
