BTW, she really hates the looks of my mini towers and subwoofer, but she is a real sport!
This is pretty much my wife. She knows it is my new hobby, and she knows how I like nice things (i.e. my gun hobby, nothing but top end Sig, Supressed ARs,etc) and blow money like I am dying tomorrow. But she gets over it very quickly with a new purse or something.
It's a "two for me, one for her deal", I get two sweet things, she gets one
As I slowly upgraded my gear from a crappy HTIB Onkyo setup, into a full on 5.1 setup, she was getting scared. First a huge HD HTPC, then a big Yamaha receiver and the one day, out of the blue, I come home with 5.1 Definitive Technology setup and start going to town in our living room.
We've always watched movies together off the HTPC or she has alone (big Harry Potter fan), but not until I setup the 5.1 has she zoned out so hard on Bluray Harry Potter box set I got her for christmas. I almost don't get to use my PS3 or HT now
Then the kicker, I showed up Friday night with a huge (as tall as our couch) Velodyne DLS-5000R sub that now practically doubles as an end table. She was not happy, nor was she happy with us setting it up until 11pm.
I'd kill for a dedicated room or basement, but that will have to be our next house, so she'll just have to survive for now.
( She's in for a suprise when I upgrade from Velodyne to DefTech SuperCube Trinity
