What excuses did you tell your wife for getting a HT system!

by CNETRahul / February 5, 2008 5:48 AM PST

I'm trying to persuade my wife for getting a home theater system. I wanted to know what kind of excuses did you tell your wife about getting one.
Currently I've my mind set on the Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver($399) and working on getting matching speakers for it. Due to the wife factor will have to go for a smaller set(I hope all you guys with 15" woofers and big floor standing speakers will excuse me :))

I ended up getting a Vizio 32 (I hear a lot of laughter!!!) and a Philips DVP5982 DVD player due the WF.

I read most of the CNET Home Audio forums, especially Jostenmeat & NM_Bill and their recommendations on speakers are really good but does not beat the wife factor for me in cost and size.

Any suggestions?

I've sorted out few of the speaker systems that I'm doing some research on, and fit the wife factor! Happy

Polk Audio RM6750
Onkyo HT240
Maybe Boston Acoustics...

I live in a apartment so I don't need big speakers.

But thats not my concern right now. I need to persuade my wife that we need a HT system.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
