    I had a lodger's brother staying one time, I got home from work and stuck a record on 'This don't sound right.'

    Went to investigate, deck was set on '45', the tracking weight was way off, the anti-skate way off. Turned out the bloke had tried to play a record but didn't realise that to make the platter turn you had to lift the arm. So he'd twiddled every single knob and adjustment possible, got no result and then just left it without saying a word to anyone.

    Yep, one of the big downsides of a cherished hifi is other bloody people in the vicinity, or even suggesting a visit.
    Mine's in the living room where visitors crash if they're staying over, and I need mucho booze to sleep well in those circumstances.
