this happens every weekend... im playing xbox late at night with all my buddies, and then i just feel an urge to move my speakers around, try new configurations, and find new placement for my subs. it happens every week... i kind of like doing it, but since my room is so small there is alot of limits of where i put things. but anyway, it always has to happen at like 2am. not a good thing to play your subs at 2am with sleeping parents and sister.biggrin.gif

Lol, I get that urge all the time as well. All of my speakers are hung, but I will still move them around and change the angle trying to get the best sound. Its rather ridiculous as I know they sound great where they are, but I am always on that quest to tweak every last bit of perfection. I still havent decided on the various positions-far as 60 degrees or 70 from center and so fourth. I know this differs with dolby and audyssey. Personally I wish they would just release the atmos http://venturebeat.com/2012/04/23/dolby-atmos-surround-sound/ so I can be so immersed in sound that it won't even matter. And yes it can drive people nuts, I always want to do this right in the middle of games or movies to try and compare.

This is so stupid.. I've lost sooo much sleep due to messing around with my system. I've been up 4-5am in the morning (weekend) trying new stuff. I've even done speaker calibrations those hours in the morning. If you have a Pioneer Elite and run a full cal. with Mcaac, it takes about 10 minutes and makes those annoying pop, buzz, blip sounds at reference level.
I've also decided to take on wire management at 2am one weekend did not finish until 7am.. I was wired up with coffee.
Gosh, I need professional help.
I have become envious of people who are just satisfied with the sound coming from their TV speakers. They have a simpler and more enjoyable life.

Well, I usually get that urge but I go to the bathroom and it's over. Oh, you're talking about the late night tinkering urge. Yes I get that sometimes. I have some of my best tinkering moments when it's way past my bedtime and I'm just messing with settings, repositioning speakers, playing sound demos, etc. I'm glad to see I'm not alone in this regard!
