You got that right.

I worked a lifetime at being productive, so I could legitimately become this unproductive.

Re: W.A.F. The dreaded Wife Acceptence Factor???

As for WAF, I have a keeper. I built a home theater with two 12" ported subs and two 15" ported subs. After watching a few movies I asked her what she though. She said "Great. But we need bigger subs." Out went the ported 12's and in came a pair of ported 18's. I love my wife!




We're all in this together!

I don't think my wife will be saying that to me... But I still love her, as she puts up with a lot from me!

Find a way to semi-retire. I work three days a week (regular eight hour days). With one more day away from work each week than at work, it's not a very taxing schedule. There's plenty of time away from work to either be unproductive or to be productive at something I want to do. I've noticed something about working less; I spend more (and that won't work indefinitely).

Last night after Godzilla, my girlfriend and I were sitting on the couch and I was throwing around the idea of changing out my side surround speakers. Well her first comment was "the next thing you buy for this room had better be theater seating". LOL.. I guess I've been told!

Re: W.A.F. The dreaded Wife Acceptence Factor???

During the 15 years or so that we've had a "Home Theater" never once has my wife complained. She has come home to new speakers (twice), a front screen, a projector, a second projector, a third projector, a new receiver, another new receiver, a third new receiver, a subwoofer, a new subwoofer amplifier, a BFD. How does one ever begin to appreciate the inner calm that must permeate her being. As do all couples we occasionally do not see eye to eye. But I cherish her acceptance of my hobby. Pretty sure she enjoys it too.


Home Theater: Onkyo TX-SR702 AVR, Infinity IL-60s & IL-36C, DefTech PF1500 sub, CSW The Surround 5.1 x 2, Draper Cineperm 92", LG PF1500, Behringer BFD, Sony BDP-S570, Pioneer Elite DV-49AV Universal player, Dish 622.

Stereo:Denon PMA-630 integrated amp, Technics SL-1300 turntable, Shure M97xE cartridge, Toshiba SD-4960 universal player, Infinity Overture 3 speakers.
