1 on the recommendation for iPhone apps. I use one called "White Noise" that is free in it's basic version and works quite well.

Those are great budget options - I especially like the second one.

Love it, KarenH.

And it's hot, hot, hot. As is the rest of the thin edge series (wish it weren't so expensive to buy vintage).

Yeah, the appliances give it away. Has to be 90s or now. I'm going with the 90s.

Another plug for highbrowfurniture. I placed a very large order with them a couple of years ago when I was furnishing my place, and the service was fantastic.

Not horrible looking, but I'd take the Eames Aluminum Group and Softpad chairs over this any day.

Good stuff.

While not cheap, I also recommend the Architectural Pottery reissues by Vessel.

A medium-sized one with a stand also makes a great fireplace wood holder (that's how I'm using it)

A couple of sub tips from a hardened audiophile:

1) Corner placement usually works best to minimize standing waves and boominess
2) If you can hear that the bass is coming from the sub, then you need to turn down its volume. Most people have the volume set way too high. Turn up the volume until you can begin localize then sound, then turn it down until you just can't
3) Two subs can indeed smooth out room irregularities, but ought not be needed unless you have a troublesome room.
