What's Wrong with this Picture? A new game...

As the title suggests, see if you can find what is wrong with this picture. Feel free to post pictures as well for the rest of us to figure out... Audio related is cool, but whatever you got works.

    I'm gonna guess the speakers up by the ceiling on top of the built-ins.. I don't know where the audio components are located, but I'm not sure it really matters.

    My neighbor put some B&W 608 or 9s up like that in his office to keep floor space for other things. I told him it was sacrilegious to do that to B&Ws but he doesn't give a s**t about fine audio. Not one bit. he's probably 55 now I guess. They're probably still up there like those martin logans are and it's been 10+ years now since he found them on the side of the road just off of our street. A college kid left them for the trash man. :s

    The chair in the sweet spot needs to turn a little more than 90 degrees clockwise for optimum imaging.

    I love the thought of having a vacuum cleaner handy. Great for the quick clean up before guests come...

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    But what kind is it? :s

    Clue: You can only find this Vac. in specialty brand stores or like I luckily did, Goodwill.

    I got to start going in to Goodwill through the front door! We usually frequent the back door just dropping off stuff! :smile:

    Looks like my hifi room would if I tidied up a bit B)


    Speaking of vacuum cleaners --we had some friends over yesteday, and the conversation drifted onto vacuum cleaners*.

    I opined that it seems to me that there's an inverse correlation between the number of vacuum cleaners in a household and the cleanliness of the household.

    By my count, including a shop vac, we have six.

    I rest my case.

    Just for the record, I vacuumed my whole house and back porch yesterday.

    But not the cottage. :D

    ... and I vacuumed on Thursday (because of the aforementioned company that was coming). :|

    Didn't vacuum the hifi room -- I like the smell of the warm dust on the vacuum tubes too much. Takes me back to my childhood.

    The gloves indicate that someone thought of cleaning up at some point...
