Actually, not a bad question. I think it is because it is changing so rapidly and getting better so fast. We're all like kids in a candy store! http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I have, literally, had the bug since my very early teens. I remember seeing a projector (obviously not a DILA http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/wink.gif) in a JCPenny catalog that had all of 3-4 reels available. I could envision the entire theater in my shared, cramped room including the ticket booth and popcorn machine just outside. I still have this memory today many, many (no really, many) years later. I guess that it's just in my very fiber.

The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.

Projectors are a tinkerers heaven! You get a rush every time you get a new feature to work, or a new add-on. But then the rush soon fades and you have to look for something else to tweak or improve. Just like an addict.

I suspect that while we might enjoy great movies (supposedly the end objective), many of us here get as much or more enjoyment out of tweaking our equipment.

What is the old saying? The experience is in the journey, not the destination.
