    But your way isn't right. It's not defined correctly. It's not in accordance with my standards. You can't enjoy it. It sucks. How can you enjoy something that doesn't gain my acceptance? I hope my disapproval of your ways eats at you until you buy Bose. Chew on that!......professional installation man...

    I ran out of beer the same time I finished rading this f'ed-up thread. Fortunately, I've got Vico-Tuss and Vodka&juice. I've upgraded from Ny-Quil.

    Mantis: Great thread. I have different opinions, but so what. Had this thread not gone to **** I would've voiced them. Oh well, I'll try anyways. Don't be so defensive and/or cocky and it'll all be good. I consider you to be a valuable resource with finances that are better than mine and a very stong opinion that is sometimes voiced inappropriatley. That's it don't get all big!

    BDT: I agree with you fully, but.... I've never thought of HT as a way to improve on a bad movie, but a way to appreciate a movie to its' full potential. While that reproduction doesn't need to be 5.1, imagine 5 DQ-10s and the matching sub(s). Movie appreciation is separate to HT. That said, I'd rather watch any movie in 2ch with quality spkrs than in 5.1 with sun soaked Kraco 6x9s.


    My thoughts:
    If you watch a movie or TV and consider the audio/visual, its' HT.

    Speakers do NOT need to be identical. Try to find an Acoustiflex (StereoLab) center spkr and I'll buy it. Until then I'll settle for my P'digm. I'll put these fronts up against a pair of *1000*s any day of the week.

    MOST 5.1 movies are overly separated across the 5 channels. Far left on-screen sounds the same as far left 20ft off-screen. 2ft behind the camera sounds like 20ft behind. In which case good stereo sound is the far winner.

    With quality speakers, a sub is not needed. In fact it is only a bandage.

    Amps DO NOT need to match. If your front speakers match, this is the obvious preference. Until there is side imaging, there is no need for identical amps or speakers from front to rear.


    Many people brought up good points that I'd like to comment on. Unfortunatly this thread is getting obscenely long and like I said, I'm outta beer.
