Can I ever stand to listen to our system again

My beloved wife died tonight at age 57. Every piece in the system was acquired after we listened to it, together. The audition of the Tidals last year was the culmination of that audio togetherness. I don't know whether I will ever be able to listen to it again.
Play a smooth soul ballad for her tonight.
I am so sorry to hear of your immense loss. I cannot imagine what you must be feeling right now.

With respect to your question, realize that it may not be the best time to consider the future of your audio system, especially if it turns out to be a powerful way to continue sharing the music with your wife. Just take care of yourself, and when the time is right, listening to your system could be exactly what soothes you most.
My condolences for your loss Karel. Music soothes the soul and I beleive your wife would have agreed being a fellow audiophile herself. Play a few of your favourate ballads yourself when your ready and allow the healing to begin, god bless thru this difficlt time.
I have no idea who you are, but my prayers go out to you and your family.

I wish you Peace, Love and Strength.
The same thing happened to me a few years ago. It may be difficult to understand today, but time is your best friend.

Find comfort in your friends and relatives.

I'll have a good thought for you; email me if you wish to chat. I wish you all the best.
