You said specifically "i want to hear the amount of bass that was recorded in the music and movies", well you aren't going to hear it on your system. You're not going to hear the proper mix either.
how the hell do you know that if youve never heard my system???
as far as music listenig goes, 2 channel stereo is going to be better than listening to it in surround sound, afterall thats how the music was recorded, and meant to be heard.
as far as for movies, yes i agree with you.
with similar quality components, (or maybe even lesser quality)a tuned, 5.1/7.1 system would top the system i have. but like i said originally, id have to spend alot more money, to get the desired system that id want if i were to go with a 7.1 setup.(in order to preserve the same quality of 2 channel listening)
i invested around $11,000 into my integrated amp and 2 speakers. if i had to buy the additional amps, a sub, a surround sound processor, AND 3 or 5 more speakers id be looking at another $15000 +
i mean, im crazy about great sound, but im not that crazy.
at this time i think id rather put the money into room treatment, surround sound IS most likey down the road for me.
