Yeah.  In my case, if either was the rule, I'd have to get rid of
stuff.  If the rule was sonic volume, I'd have to chuck everything.  If
it was physical volume, I'd only have to chuck half the stuff.

Thankfully, it doesn't work quite like that for me.  I either have to
fit it into a predefined space, or suggest a reasonable alternative
place to put it.

Alas, for the apartment, there is no way to get an Onyx in past her.
Well, I could, but she would be very angry.  However, I do have another
place I could place and operate such things.

She did support me in spending money to buy smaller machines to replace
a bigger one though.
