My dog likes sitting by my speakers. Like right next to them and he looks at me when I turn off my system. I can be cranking dubstep metering at 110db and he is very content. Same in my truck. He bothers me when I don't have music playing but will lay down in the backseat and go to sleep if the music is playing. Strange? I think so. I know he does not care for classical or anything that is soft playing. But as soon as I play something with a beat he comes out of my home office and lays in the living room. He loves bass and I think it's pretty cool.

Is this common with most animals you all own?

My dog goes away and lies in another room if I start watching anything moderately loud. He must think my gear sucks.

Of course, I got it modified with the TK-427, which cheeks it up another, maybe, 3 or 4 quads per channel.

Mine look at me with a very quizzical, almost worried look when I sing. I'm not sure this classifies them as audiophile or not wink.gif

The three small dogs don't seem to care much, although the 2 females will go somewhere else with heavy surround and LFE. The big dogs go right to sleep.

Recently I was trying to listen to "Tapestry" by Carole King and our dog Layla was very in my face wanting attention, wanting to go out, etc.

Then I turned on the "Smooth Jazz" station on U-Verse and she was a mellow girl in minutes.

I guess in my case it matters what music I am playing.

I got 3 cats

The big male (20lb) just go away.
The small female (9lb) go hide under our bed.
But my medium male (12lb) always site on my legs and watch movies with us (at loud volume) and just love it.

My dog always sings along. It's pretty hilarious for the first few minutes...

Nope, my dog leaves the room when the volume gets loud. However, at normal volumes, he seems content to listen with us. Plus, it is always funny when a scene with barking/howling dogs comes on -- he'll pop his head out from under a blanket or lift it from our laps and his ears perk up and just tune in as he stares at the speakers and tilts his head, like "but...those aren't dogs" lol.

No problems except on some loud explosions or thunderclaps (my dog is afraid of thunder). My dog used to leave the room when I practiced my trumpet, but now she just lies there. I'd like to think I was getting better but she's probably just getting old... smile.gif

I would never insult my dog by calling her an "audiophile", however she does love to look where the sound is coming from, especially the surrounds!tongue.gif

As our dog got older, she hated bass more and more.
