Listening to music with my son. . He said "it sounds good.. clean and clear but too much like it's coming from the actual speakers. . I like it when it sounds wider.." impressed, I got up and checked speaker positions.. sure enough I hadn't put them back in the right place this morning. . I moved one in and he said "that's it! Wow so just moving the speakers can change the sound". I nearly cried with pride. He's 11. :^

Thought you was going to say you'd swapped a cable and he could hear a difference ;-) Seriously I enjoy listening to music with my girls.

OOPS....sounds like a slippy slope to expensive xmas and birthday presents.

Best get him a toy gun as soon as possible.

Ps, my 11 year old has no interest at all, so truth be told, Im a little jealous.

Brian, he loves music so has an MP3 player and I bought him some half decent senheissers, which he loves.

Of my 5 kids, only one shows any interest and he quite liked a pair of ATC SCM100ASL, Modwright 36.5, Whest Ref and a nice TT. He said he would be happy with that, yeah right. :roll:

Seems like he has buttered you up quite nicely, he will probably hit you with whatever it is he really wants tomorrow!

If he has made this much effort it will probably be expensive :)

Good ears and a brain. At 11 years old he's already outgrown you.You are now past it!
Yep, time to hang up my Grados. Let the youngster write my reviews. He's won prizes at school for his writing too.. Shit! I need to put a stop to this, lest he ends up as a hifi reviewer.. Inky blacks boy.. they'll haunt you!

This is partly while I am relieved to have a daughter, its extremely undignified and pointless to feel the need to compete with her.

Whilst she shares little interest in hifi (largely rolling her eyes at the comings and goings of various boxes) her appetite and taste in music is something to be proud of. She used to get in trouble for humming Velvet Underground songs in junior school, and now at the age of 20 she will attempt to bore the ears of anybody listening as to how extraordinary Buddy Holly was.

I'm not sure my mrs could tell the difference if a cable came lose and the music was coming from just one channel.

Me thinks there is a bit of an influence from the propieter of Wheat Audio there.
