mikeyraw, please don't think I am bitching at you or trying to tell you that you don't realize what you like. I'm not. And you can believe I don't "worry" about how loud you listen to the television. But you might do well to heed my advice brother; be careful of your hearing. Once it's gone, that's it, you aren't getting it back. I like loud volumes too...at times. But there are definately some things that shouldn't be listened to loudly. Television is one of them. The sound quality just doesn't justify the risk. Quality movies, properly recorded music however can be listened to at higher levels.
Do as you wish, but coming from an audiophile, I want to make sure my hearing lasts me a lifetime if possible so I can enjoy things like television, movies, music and video games.
Sorry, but I did not intend to offend you.
