Default Valid Kid-Proofing Strategy?

I've been thinking that I'd be less ticked off if my kid snapped the drawer mechanism of a cheap DVD player (with a digital coaxial output), than I would be if this type of accident happened to an Arcam Diva I paid $999 for...

Hence I've been investing in outboard DIP and DAC, figuring the player part becomes less of a factor, as jitter and DAC get cleaned up via outboard processing components. Maybe it's true that as of late, most ANY DVD player can read a plain audio CD and provide a bit stream that's "fully" recoverable.

Do you think this is a good strategy? Let's not digress into a discussion of parenting styles and dicipline techniques. Please keep it "technical and electronics".

Best Regards,

I just keep mine behind a fence. A high place would work (I'm six foot, Red Chief is only 38 inches).

But your strategy sounds good. A stream of numbers is a stream of numbers.

any strategy that justifies building more stuff, is probably going to be popular hereabouts.

you could also put stuff behind a nice glass case. use a top-loader and you don't have to worry about the disc tray hitting the glass.

/andrew - whose strategy includes twine. and not opening the cabinet while the little princess is around.
