I think some of us could get away with more things than others. It depends on our financial status and the wife's level of observation. You could put in a million dollar system and your wife would just say "cool". My wife just said to me the other day, "Honey, I just noticed you have 10 speakers in the room."And I'm thinking, "Yes, honey, and also the other 3 speakers and 7 subwoofers you don't even noticed in the same room".
