May I assume that you use MUSE in reference to our present form of aMUSEment, Home Theater?
For there are those among us who believe that there is room for both industrial products and craftsmanship, and that these are in no way mutually exclusive!
I sincerely hope you do not construe this thread to be either disrespectful or in any way damaging to the screen industry as it stands today...
At worst, it will raise our expectations in terms of screen quality, and turn us into prime prospective commercial candidates for new generations of top quality screen products from leading manufacturers. In time, we are contributing to the development of an elite screen market segment.
At best, our purposeful and accidental experimentation will stimulate manufacturers' research and development efforts which foster conceptual and technological renewal in this burgeoning industry. Also, by improving the price/performance ratio of the projections of newcomers to HT, it would only help draw more people to the market.
Should you or other parties consider that this thread goes against the interests of the Home Theater enthusiasts to which this board is dedicated, or to economic interests which might supersede them, the issue should be taken up directly with "the management". They have full authority to delete this thread and ban me from the forum - Members will advise.
Just as the sociocultural diversity of the international community affords sufficient freedom for the coexistence of both Hollywood's commercial blockbusters and avant-garde artistic cinematography - within the commercial environment of Home Theater there is a need for market self-education.
For it is through direct interaction with the utility parameters of products and services that customers determine the properties and utilities that they value and will purchase.
It is referred to as economic freedom.
And you, if anyone, must realize that Home Theater is progress driven - and that many Home Theater enthusiasts don't want to be back-seat drivers.
While in forum threads, people sometimes take offense to comments that were never so intended, probably due to some sort of cultural gap. As this board spans the world, so such eventualities are inevitable.
However, despite our highly divergent cultural reference frameworks, I did manage to understand that you have information which you have chosen to divulge regarding a person whose name closely resembles that of a well-known screen manufacturer.
I am not privy as to whether this reflects a strange coincidence, personal allegiances or grievances, or an attempt to politicize an otherwise neutral discussion. (this tends to happen in France)
I have not had the privilege of meeting the gentlemen to which you refer, and I cannot fathom what might have motivated you to illustrate this individual with sole reference to his possession of motor vehicles stored in an enclosed locale.
Is this form of "car communication" a tradition in Florida or its geographic vicinity? If so, please forgive my failure to bring forth the expected reaction to your statement. I am truly at a loss...
I trust this is not meant to reduce people to their choice of personal transportation or taste in automotive engineering? Do you attach such importance to brand names or nationality of production, or was this an insinuation as to his financial status? (strictly none of my business, it pertains no relevance as to the presence or absence of personal virtues)
Nonetheless, I salute your vast experience in home theater, and would readily welcome your collegial contributions to this thread.
From your many interesting posts I have had the opportunity to read on this board, I would assume that you must have done alot of personal experimentation with screen materials yourself, or at minimum be in a unique position to formulate judgments and express constructive opinions and helpful suggestions concerning our innocent endeavor.
Until that time - happy viewing!
