When the Diva has needed servicing, my wife counts the days til it's return. If it dies, I'm certain my wife will hand me a blank check and say "replace it...TODAY!"

Same situation. I had had an ECM Giotto that predated my wife. It started to give up the ghost after 15 years of service. When I got a new job 2-1/2 years ago and started day dreaming about machines, my wife said “clearly the slayer is ridiculous, but think about how many cappuccino you make for me, get the la marzocco”.

Cheers to our wives!
