Check the archives. There have been several threads on this topic in the last few years. It is probably best to listen while standing up.

Ms: What a cheerful reply (perhaps you are standing up too much and need to take a load off - you can light a Bic while seated:-)? Listening chairs change perhaps as much as the Hi-fi gear itself. I will respond again when I can provide a link to a photo of my favorite listening chair. I have my choice of two of the same (and they are classic killers). Whatjd - brace yourself (better yet sit down before you view the photo).
Sorry for the redundancy. I did check the archives, but obviously not thoroughly enough. I apologize for rehashing an old issue.
Msnloeth, I don't know you at all, so it's very difficult to see your intended humor. Remember, I can't see your smiling face, only your words through the 12pt. Times New Roman.
Gunbei: No need to be overly serious is there? This stuff is supposed to be for fun. I guess I just haven't given my furniture a lot of thought. I would rather be comfortable first as I don't have a seperate listening room and the room is used for a lot of different activities. My response was an attempt at humor. Please don't take it any other way.
My "chair" is formerly my bed.
I moved into a new apartment 6 mos ago when I transferred to CSUF. I rented an apt much larger than I need just to make my KEF 103/4s happy. Well, I am happy when he is happy, or she... even better.
Anyways, my living room is very spartan (as opposed to athenan?). I moved my futon into the living room and folded it up into a sofa configuration. I bought a canvas futon cover as well.
This is a good set up, for I can sit or lie down while listening to my system. The futon acts as a good acoustic sponge to absorb "glare", NOT that my system needs it.
Yah, that is how my gluteus is supported; financial aid, scholarships, grants, (mom) and futon. Am I the only mama's boy out here?
