She says "room is too small" (compared to theater), and I said, SPL is SPL, am I right in that regards?I love it loud...I'm just curious is my fiance an anomaly?
I can't believe you even asked. Of course
there is nothing wrong with your fiancee, of course
there's something wrong with you!
Get used to it. (I've been married 28 years)
FYI I recently upgraded to a new, high powered 5.1 setup. My wife listens to the TV with the volume (on the TV run thru the AVR) to a ONE, and when I complain she sometimes cranks it up to 4. I think 25 is a moderate listening level, and for musical shows like DWTS 40 sounds pretty good.
So, I get LOUD when I want it (ie, when she's not home) and she (seriously) is enjoying the same equipment, but for the opposite reason; speech on it is so crystal clear, she can turn it DOWN and it's a very relaxing, very enjoyable listening experience for her.
More seriously, congrats on getting married. And LISTEN to your wife, because they are usually right about things.
Don't ever admit that.
