Couples fight about a lot of things, but when they’re moving in together, it quickly becomes clear that one partner is going to be more adamant about what goes and what stays, than the other. Ask most audiophiles, and they’ll admit that their partners were so offended by the huge, bulky speakers that they enjoyed when they lived alone but that take up half a room, that the fights begin and often don’t end until the speakers are put on EBAY,
Even if you are single and can make your own decorating choice, choosing a bluetooth speaker can be very confusing. There are a ton of different sizes, styles and price points. Even if they’re not huge speakers from previous decades, most of the new, bluetooth speakers capable of delivering decent sound are big. They take up a lot of room and you have to place them so your partner is going to seethe every time s/he walks by.
