My messy room. I'm trying to clean it up. Can't you tell? I suppose this will be a good before/after opportunity.

Looks bad, measures well enough, sounds great.

So is that a reflection in the TV screen of you in your underwear taking the picture? It is indefinite enough you can claim you are wearing a set of swimwear. :)

It does explain why your speakers weren't in the proper environment at the Harman facility during testing.

And I'll not be posting shots of my room, because it looks untidy by comparison.

I see clearly the reflection too; I see the lower part of a guy wearing white diapers. ...From below his shoulders all the way down to his feet, sitting on the couch's back rest and with his two legs in different positions. I don't usually wear diapers myself but I do understand that here we are @ ASR, and toilets have a big emphasis, so it all makes sense in a way.

Ray, you got to get the story right.
That's not messiness, they are strategically positioned bass dampening and room tuning accessories. ;)

First of all, congratulations ray.. a finer figure of a man in white Y-fronts I'm yet to see so well done . Secondly on behalf of both my self and I'm sure amir I'd like to thank you for doing your bit to bring more female members to the forum , it's greatly appreciated.

I hope your fine example will lead to other members sharing more of themselves here on our forum.

Come on @Sal1950 where are the pictures of you in your army boots wearing only a smile ?? :D

Gimped

So now we can talk about filing cabinets, and barrel distortion in camera lenses.

The big gun is the least frightening thing in this picture...
That's what I call a serious, sturdy woman. :eek:
If you can tame her, if you can ride her, she's yours. .:D

My other half thinks my system and music collection takes up too much room and looks untidy...
I've just shown her your photo (I didn't point out you in your underpants!), she now realises that it could be so, so much worse!
Many, many thanks Ray!

I bought a six-foot 24 outlet power strip.

When I get ambitious it will serve to tidy up the backside, somewhat.

BTW, @RayDunzl are you done cleaning up the mess?
