We watched Blair Witch on a screener VHS from my video store pal on it. Blew our little minds.
I think my old Sony CRT had big speakers in it and it sounded decent. But I do remember that TV was uber heavy!

Living room? I thought you had a dedicated HT room. In fact, I've seen pics of it. I dunno, maybe I caught rsg's Norovirus.

Take life with a grain of salt... a slice of lime, and a shot of tequila

Oh yeah I do but I was wanting to spread my toys out in her space!

If you are running to the toilet or puking, you might have it!

I cannot afford a Ferrari but I not going to bash them for spending their money on what they want. I also say yeah it might sound old school but I like having space for that stuff. Most of my extended family hasn't experienced my HT stuff so they look at me with lobsters crawling out of my ears.

Economics is an important factor and there are some badass soundbars and stuff out there for sure.
Man, you guys sound old.
Not me. Most of the kids in my neighborhood think I am pretty hip. I am usually in the front driveway once or twice a month waxing my high horsepower, low gas efficiency, 10+ year old vehicle. The kids always ride, or skate by, and they always gesture at me waxing my car and smile to each other. I can tell I am "in".

Yep, my Sony Wega had pretty good sound. But my first plasma definitely takes the cake for tv speakers. It was a Panny 42PX600U and it had like a 30 watt amp in it. I gifted it to my parents awhile back and they were more than impressed with the sound. As a result they have continued to buck the idea of getting a small 5.1 system or even a soundbar.

After opening the Blu-ray packages for The Visit and Sinister 2, a question came to mind. In the past, I've always thrown out the Ultraviolet insert without a second thought, but it occurred to me for the first time that there may be some value in keeping them. For those with Ultraviolet experience and HTPCs, can you actually download a copy of the movie in full HD w/lossless sound directly to your computer? Or is it just a streaming service??
