'cha think?? Although it is not the best acoustics for a hearing impaired child, it IS the most practical for our family. The process to install was not difficult at all, as long as your walls are straight! But, it's all good we worked out the kinks! It's so shiny, and cool to the feet and most of all, doesn't have a lick of dog hair on it! The french doors shut to Jackson's room and is off limits to the dog! We are very pleased with our purchase!
