... the wife doesn't want wires around the place, so it's a no go,
why is it always the wives/girlfriends?
What is it with females?

Who wears the trousers in your gaff.

Do the install right and there shouldn't be a wire in sight.

It's because they consider wires to be something that makes the house look messy.

In that respect, you could claim the hoover, iron etc wires are also messy

IME wives/girlfriends love it when all the wires are hidden. But what they really like is going away when you have some major project planned and then coming back to find it all finished and tidy. They seem to struggle with the "breaking eggs to make an omelet" bit.

Then there's the fear that it's all going to become ever so complicated to work... The "I just want to watch TV" argument.

But why always women?...they are such fussy creatures.
Why do they have the final say, why are some men such wimps, what are you afraid of?
I decided to have SS, my partner has never made a fuss,
I wanted it, I bought it, installed it, it looks a terrible mess behind the telly, but that's the way it goes.

A1. Because Women's brain's are wired differently from Men's. That's why they'll never fully understand each other.
A2. Think about it...

Simple. You hear the sound. She sees the mess. You both have to live with it. Don't count on her putting up with it forever. Find a compromise while you can.

I am a woman and I am the one who wants all of the gadgets, and I could not care less if I can see wires so long as the sound is good.

Perhaps you are with the wrong woman?? ( now thats another thread )

Don't think about a "wireless" HS system as a solution.

I installed one for someone once and it was a BIG disappointment.

the "wireless" bit wa an infra red link to the rear speakers, but that just meant you had to find a mains socket to plug the receiver / amplifier into, and still run a cable between the two rear speakers.
