One of my least favorite things about renting an apartment is having to be always conscious of my neighbors who I share walls and a floor with. Because of this we've put off getting a home theater system and I've been obsessing over one ever since I listened to it in one of those big box electronic stores.
So when I found out that my favorite brand had a factory store nearby and got $100 off of the unit I loved...
My husband's protests did not stand a chance - and he's enjoying the system even more than I am! Although he's more of a watch TV and movies type of user and I'm a find new apps to make the system do more cool stuff type.
I tried using Pandora once before at work - with my mediocre speaker system - I didn't really enjoy it then. I don't have a stereo at home, so I don't listen to the radio - my music was limited to my very small mp3 collection but I enjoyed it because I got a great speaker dock. Then my boss (who just got an Internet TV herself) asked me if Pandora was available as an app - and since it's prominently displayed on my screen every time I load my Internet TV source, I said yes and admitted to never having tried it before. And because I believe in trying interesting apps at least once - I got it to work this morning.
And my craving for music on my new speaker system just got sated... I think I just fell in love with Pandora! It's so easy to use and set up - I'm discovering new music and artists as I compose this post. I definitely have no buyer's remorse about my entertainment system. It has saved us a lot, because instead of going out, my husband and I are often contented to just stay in with our Internet Apps and TV shows - especially now that everything sounds so good! Plus, I got a system that's just right for my living space - and so far the neighbors have not complained. :)
