Ok. I know smoke is bad for your high end audio equipment, but what about using candles in your listening room? Specifically scented candles. When my girlfriend comes over to listen to music , she always likes to light candles all around the room.

Do you think it's bad for your equipment?

Well..if the trade off is candles = naked girl or no candles = no naked girl ....I am pretty sure most of us would risk the candles....

I thought we were thinking lights off=cleaner, better power to gear, = heightened listening experience.? Right? Am I missing something?

the soot from cheap scented candles is obvious, better quality candles not as much but over time the staining will become noticeable.

Just be sure to keep your wick trimmed. :shock:

Long dirty wicks can allow the flame to lose control and create out of control sooty emissions. :|

Would you mind posting pictures of your set-up, with your girlfriend of course; that way we can determine its merits.

Come on baby, light my fire .... :)

Just ask your equipment how it feels about the candles...if they say it's Ok you're good...haven't harmed a thing.
