Yes or No: Have you spent $20K or more on your audio or home theater setup?

Please just answer yes or no. That's all. (Good luck with that one!)

You can include whether you bought new or used or got good deals or paid list.

I thought it'd be interesting to consider folks attitudes here at this forum statistically with their spending habits. And to correlate who even responds as well.

yes.

Bought all new, but took advantage of the trade in/upgrade system my dealer has. I would say I got an average of 15% off new equipment.

NO! (We find out who can answer straight Yes or No. The ability to do so may give someone a higher score on an IQ test.)

Actually, I have two systems, an analog audio system and a HT system.
The audio system came in at over $20K despite buying a number of used components.
The HT system came in at just around 20k, again a number of componets were used.

Actually, you didn't really ask a yes or no question. Do they let you get away with ambigious questions in court?
