expensive cables are mostly marketing hype. go to monoprice.com and get their cables. best prices ever. With regards to "specs"... what you have to watch out for is:

for video: quality cable makes a difference when you use very long cables. for short distances like 3 feet, use anything.

for audio: gauge makes more of a difference than "brand".

for super dusty I recommend buying a portable wet/vac. like a 5Gallon or smaller. Yes I know regular carpet vacuums have an attachment that works but they cannot compare to the power of a wet vac. after that I prefer to just use swiffer pads. after the dust is gone, then use water.

i think you might be best off with headphones if you're concerned about the noise going everywhere. I believe there are many receivers out there that have a "night time" option (or whatever it's called) that basically quiet the loud noises will keeping the vocals audible. that's not a high end feature btw... should be fairly common. I don't know how well it works though and of course that's more expensive than other options you might consider.

the only wireless option that I heard was "moderately acceptable" was the Rocketfish. I think it's like 50 bucks.

why couldn't you just apply polyurethane over the scratch? isn't that what's coating the rest of the hardwood?

i was under the impression that you weren't supposed to use products on hard wood floors? is this one of those examples that is the exception to the rule and is actually good for the wood?

very impressive. can you describe how your floating table/bar was built? I'm assuming some sort of massive "L" bracket was used...
