Well, markl, I have neither a good full-range speaker system nor a surround speaker system.

"I have 2 "small" speakers and a subwoofer-- yet still headphones rule!!"

"I have 2 "small" speakers and a subwoofer-- and speakers rule!!"

10-4, markl.

Also, removed the parentheses around "or only crappy speakers".

EDIT: Now changed the first choice to read "I have only crappy speakers or no speakers at all..."

What about the option for "I used to have speakers, but I sold them to buy a new couch, now I have headphones but the dog chewed them up so I am using a pair I borrowed from my neighbour"?

You are clearly excluding people here!

I didn't vote, and I probably will not. I still think the correct option is not there for me. Oh, well.

What about the different types of speakers? I don't think the electrostatic people want to be mixed with the dynamic people. And that doesn't even take into account the vocal horn folks.

Seriously, though, wouldn't two or three options be enough? Those who have expensive speaker systems, those with modest speaker systems, and those without speaker systems? It's hard to draw any conclusions from a poll with as many unnecessary options as this one.

I am not going to complain about the choices. I found one and voted. Thank you very much.

I think my speakers would rule if my house was big enough to really let them work. I have bad speaker placement and bad sitting placement. The room is too small and the sub had to be placed too far away. Like in the next room.

On the bright side, I don't need an extension cord for my headphones.
