... and I would add, " It just seems that this 20K forum is all about audio and politics of audio and religious beliefs of audio.... in terms of playback of music or FLAC tracks and the likes rather than Blu Ray soundtracks".
I believe that at a certain Threshold, SSPs are pretty much alike for movie sound - (e.g. great dynamic range, sound field, etc). Relative to the room, whether you are using a conventional horizontally aligned center (bad), surround placement, absorption and diffusion, etc is far more impactful than the SSP at a certain price point in my opinion. Adding a la carte items like room correction, DSPs, room treatments, etc only enhance the stock performance of good SSPs.
But I agree with you that there is far more performance variations in various price points of various projector technologies compared to the very much all-sound-alike alike SSP world... Yet, to your point, SSPs get all the discussion.
Goodbye to a great audio and video genius and writer... JOHN GANNON. I enjoyed your friendship, wit and a nice long run we took around Indianapolis at CEDIA years back... and for buying my Runco 980 Ultra years back... you saved my ass! Rest in peace.
